This week, Justin and Gurdip are digging into the tragically short-lived life and career of R&B songwriter and singer Chuck Willis, whose "I Feel So Bad" and "See See Rider" wove in and out of Elvis's career. Also, initial reactions to the new Back in Nashville set and answering a listener email about the Jethro-Tull-esque flute part that dominates the 1968 version of "Don't Be Cruel."
Then, for Song of the Week, Gurdip curls up with "There's No Room to Rhumba in a Sports Car" from Fun in Acapulco, while Justin goes back to the country well and pulls out Elvis's softer cover of Eddy Arnold's "It's A Sin."
