Elvis Radio is an all Elvis Presley station on Sirius Satellite Radio channel 19[1] (previously 13), XM Satellite Radio channel 19[2] (previously 18) and Dish Network channel 6013.

The station began broadcasting from Graceland in Memphis in 2004 from a small, state-of-the-art facility surrounded by windows near the ticket plaza. The very first voice ever heard on Elvis radio was Bill Rock (originally from New York Radio stations, WNBC, WYNY, WCBS-FM) Since that time, Elvis Radio has not only become popular on-air, but also a favorite stop of the Elvis faithful as they make their pilgrimage to the home of the King of Rock and Roll.

Elvis Radio prides itself on the depth of its playlist. It includes many hundreds of songs from the early years, the classics, the comebacks, rarities, live tracks and mostly everything Elvis ever recorded. With the contacts made by station staff, some recordings have been unearthed that have rarely been heard anywhere else.

Among the airstaff on Elvis Radio is George Klein, a best friend of Elvis, a WHBQ DJ in the early days of rock and roll. Other members of the staff include the popular Doc Walker, Memphis-native, Argo, Big Jim Sykes, "TY", and Dave Shelby. Bill Rock remains the longest running DJ on the station on Saturday nights.
