Soundtrack Saturday Night: Frankie & Johnny
Tues 10/26 10:00 pm ET
If you’re like us, and can’t remember whether Frankie is the girl or the guy, here’s the easy way to know: Ellie Mae Clampett (Donna Douglas) played the role of Frankie, short for Francine. That means Elvis played the part of Johnny. Bill Rock promises to play the extended version of the title song. (2 hrs)

Memphis Means Music! It’s M3 week, and to celebrate Elvis Radio hosts a special guest DJ hour with Sid Selvidge and Jeremy Stanfill. Sid started playing guitar because of Elvis.
