Inspired by the now-iconic "Vegas Rehearsal" scene from Baz Luhrmann's Elvis, and winning the Patreon poll for topic this month, Justin and Bec sit down to try to unpack Elvis's working relationships with his musical producers, what people really meant when they described Elvis as his own producer, and if that moment in the movie was really based on something that really happened (spoiler: like most things in the movie, kinda, yeah!)
Then Gurdip gets tagged in the ring for Song of the Week as he tackles Elvis's 1956 cover of the Clyde McPhatter & The Drifters hit "Money Honey" while Justin try to explain to Gurdip what exactly a "mess of polk salad" really is, as he look behind Tony Joe White and his classic "Polk Salad Annie," which Elvis covered in 1970.
