If you’re a fan of The King, then you’ve probably had Elvis Week marked off in your calendar for months. If you’re more of a casual Elvis listener, however, we’ll tell you how Elvis Week works: Kicking off on 8/8 and running through 8/17, Elvis Week takes place in Memphis (where else?), and is an annual gathering of fans from around the world who join together to celebrate Elvis’ life and legacy.

In other words, this is an event that SiriusXM Elvis Radio wouldn’t miss for the world.

Here’s a quick look at what’s in store: For the tenth consecutive year, Elvis Radio will carry complete Elvis Week global coverage including reports, updates, interviews, and celebrity guest DJ shows culminating in the live Candlelight Vigil play-by-play broadcast on Thursday 8/15. Elvis Radio will also replay the 2014 Candlelight Vigil broadcast at midnight ET and at 10 am ET on Saturday 8/16.

Other Elvis Radio Elvis Week program highlights include an edition of the Elvis Quiz Show to be played at 1:30 pm ET on Friday 8/15, as well as the regularly scheduled George Klein Show on Friday 8/15 at 3 pm ET.

Here’s everything else you’ll hear during Elvis Week:
