Professor Ladhar's class returns after a long summer vacation for a look at the chart where Elvis' last Top 10 R&B hit peaked. The Beatles haven't quiet yet came to the US, Motown is beginning to take hold, and things are about the change... but for the moment, Elvis is in good company alongside all-time great female vocalists like Doris Troy and Martha & the Vandellas, as well as icons such as Brook Benton and Marvin Gaye.
Then, for Song of the Week, Gurdip continues his R&B kick with the 1960 blues number "Like A Baby," while Justin highlights "And The Grass Won't Pay No Mind", the only studio cut Elvis made written by the "Jewish Elvis" himself, Neil Diamond!
