This week, Justin and Bec are joined by Rick London, longtime Elvis fan since 1955, and music history aficionado. Rick provides a wealth of insights and experiences on what being a contemporary Elvis fan felt like, and how the process of learning about him and consuming pop culture has evolved in the years since, and in a fun sidebar, Justin even gets him to discuss his brief stint in the mid-60s managing and producing a regionally successful indie record for a local garage band that featured the promoter later known for discovering Prince.

In lieu of trivia, Gurdip jumps in to present **his** list of favorite Elvis songs by year, then for Song of the Week, he happily gets his hands dirty, digging into "Petunia the Gardener's Daughter" from the Frankie and Johnny soundtrack. Then, Justin pleads a case for everyone to revisit the hugely overlooked 1973 Stax recording, "Love Song of the Year," released two years later as an album cut on the Promised Land LP, and then promptly forgotten about.
