Gold is celebrating all things Elvis!
From Monday (August 10), Gold will be looking back at the life and music of the King of Rock and Roll, culminating on Sunday, which marks 43 years since we lost a legend.
The week kicks off with James Bassam presenting an All Elvis Breakfast in the More Music Breakfast Show from 6-10am.
On Tuesday, we'll play an All Elvis Hall of Fame at 10am, followed by an Elvis Number Ones special on Wednesday at 1pm.
