A Special Tribute to Elvis Presley: Next on TVC

Actor and author Michael Dante, author Tom Lisanti and Elvis Presley historian Cory Cooper will join us this weekend on TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org.

Wednesday, August 16, 2017 will mark the 40th anniversary of the death of Elvis Presley. With that in mind, we will devote to this week’s program entirely to The King.

Renowned Elvis Presley historian Cory Cooper will join Tony and Donna in our first hour for a special edition of This Week in TV History.

Sixties film historian Tom Lisanti will also join us in our first hour. Tom’s latest book, Talking Sixties Drive-In Movies, includes a detailed look at the evolution of the “Elvis movie,” with a particular focus on the many musicals that Elvis made for M-G-M between 1964 and 1967. The book also features recollections from many of the King’s leading ladies and co-stars, including Shelley Fabares, Nancy Czar, Arlene Charles, Gail Gerber, Christopher Riordan, and Irene Tsu.

Our program will also include a return appearance by actor and author Michael Dante (Winterhawk, Winterhawk’s Land, From Hollywood to Michael Dante Way). Michael co-starred with Elvis and Charles Bronson in the 1962 movie Kid Galahad. He’ll share a few stories about his friendship with “EP” when he joins us in our second hour.

We will then close out this week’s show with an encore presentation of our conversation earlier this year with Emmy Award-winning producer, director and author Steve Binder (Hullabaloo, The T.A.M.I. Show, Fade Up 26: The Movers and Shakers of Variety Television, Elvis: The 1968 Comeback Special). Steve will take us behind the scenes of the Elvis Comeback Special, including the backstory of its iconic closing number, “If I Can Dream.”
