Re: Elvis phone interview with Matt Everitt on BBC Radio 6Music, February 5, 2020

Elvis on the 'phone. About 10 minutes of taped chat , with extracts from the usual 70s/80s songs . Nothing really new. Non- committal comments on Brexit/Trump, which has prompted a hostile tweet from a keyboard warrior. The chat goes into a full play of Shipbuilding, without a sign off comment , and...

By the way the venue in Kilmainham was in the old Royal Hospital. The same hospital that Elvis's grandfather recovered in after bei...

“I haven’t counted how many songs [we know] but I know I’ve just sent a list of another ten to everybody to consider that we maybe listen to and think about how we would play that can make the combinations a little bit more unique for this UK run.

Re: Mike Nicholls to include 'interview', from 1981, with Elvis in new book , 2019

I finally got around to getting this book. It is very much in the style of the mass market publications that Mike's work has appeared in over the decades. Nothing discernibly extra is added to the account of his encounter with Elvis in 1981. Definitely a book for dipping into . https://scontent.fdub...

I was sat next a lady who is a Macmillan cancer nurse and will soon be collecting her OBE alongside Elvis Costello. (Something she was very excited about!)
