Elvis and the Movies

TVC 586.1: Musician and historian Chuck Harter joins us for Part 2 of our special two-part tribute to the life and music of Elvis Presley. Chuck helped produced I, Elvis, a three-part look at the life and career of The King that originally aired in 1992 on the syndicated magazine series Hard Copy. As a result of that project, Chuck interviewed and got to know several members of the Memphis Mafia, including Charlie Hodge, Lamar Fike, Sonny West, Marty Lacker, Jerry Schilling, and Billy Smith. That gave him first-hand knowledge of Elvis from the people who knew him best. Chuck shares a few more of those stories in this segment, plus he performs “Love Me Tender.” Want to advertise/sponsor our show?

The 3 Great Periods of Elvis’ Career
