Justin & Gurdip are joined by Olivia Murphy-Rogers for a review of the pilot episode of the 2017 CMT miniseries "Sun Records." Intended as an adaptation of the stage musical "Million Dollar Quartet," did the series' attempt at making Memphis Recording Service's historic breakthroughs relevant to modern audiences work, or did the show give in to biopic tropes and stereotypes?
Then, for Song of the Week, Olivia selects Elvis' cover of Eddy Arnold's timeless country ballad "After Loving You," while Gurdip serenades us all with his version of The Tune Weavers' "Happy Happy Birthday Baby." (Oh yeah, and he talks about Elvis' home recording of said tune!) Justin, meanwhile, takes a complete 180 from pretty much every Elvis fan ever and tries to make a case for "Signs of the Zodiac."
