Songcraft: Conversations with Great Songwriters Podcast

Elvis Week







For Elvis Week 2017 we honor the 40th anniversary of the King's passing with a new bonus episode featuring the remarkable story of Randy Starr, a dentist who was moonlighting as a songwriter for Elvis films. Plus, we take a look back at some previous interviews with those who wrote songs Elvis Presley recorded (or who knew him intimately). Click any of the photos below to take you to the episode page. And happy Elvis Week!
