By

SIRIUS Satellite Radio's all-Elvis Presley music channel, Elvis Radio, (channel 13) will provide national coverage of the annual Elvis Week celebration in Memphis, Tennessee from August 8 through August 16.

During Elvis Week, fans from around the world gather in Memphis and at Graceland to honor the memory of Elvis Presley, who died on August 16, 1977.

A highlight of coverage will be the annual Candlelight Vigil, when thousands of fans traditionally carry lit candles to Elvis’s gravesite at Graceland. The event will be hosted live on-air by George Klein, who was one of Elvis’s closest friends and is a regular Elvis Radio on-air host.

In-depth reports, celebrity guest DJs, and fan interviews will also be presented on Elvis Radio during Elvis Week.

Elvis Radio broadcasts live from its studio located at Graceland. For more information, visit www.sirius.com.
