Musician and historian Chuck Harter will join 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 will share some more of those stories this week. He’ll also share a poignant memory of his own that occurred on Aug. 16, 1977, the day that Elvis died, plus he’ll perform two Elvis tunes. Chuck Harter will join us in our first hour.
As this Tuesday, Aug. 16, marks the 45th anniversary of Elvis’ death, our program this week will also include highlights from our March 2017 conversation with Emmy Award-winning producer and director Steve Binder (Elvis: The 1968 Comeback Special, Shindig, The T.A.M.I. Show, Fade UP: 26… The Movers and Shakers of Variety Television). Steve takes us behind the scenes of the ’68 Comeback Special, including the back story of that show’s iconic finale, “If I Can Dream.”
Plus: We’ll bring you a clip from our December 2018 conversation with game show legend Wink Martindale (Gambit, Debt, Tic Tac Dough, Winking at Life, “Deck of Cards”). Known for his long association with Elvis Presley, Wink was there at the very beginning: the night in July 1954 when Memphis, TN radio station WHBQ became the first station to play an Elvis record on the radio.
