Elvis Presley, who was born on this date and went on to become the King of Rock & Roll, left a lasting impression on the genre and pop culture. He's also the subject of many a song. Can you think of any that mention Elvis or are about him? We'll spin a set and we can also include songs from Elvis' repertoire by the King himself or covered by others. Listen in after 9am.

Here's what we played;

Richard Thompson "From Galway to Graceland"

Gillian Welch "Elvis Presley Blues"

Fine Young Cannibals "Suspicious Minds"

Elvis Presley "Mystery Train"
