Elvis Radio is an all Elvis Presley station on Sirius XM Radio channel 19 and Dish Network channel 6019.

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). 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, and a WHBQ DJ in the early days of rock and roll, Doctor Rob Walker, Memphis-native, Argo, Big Jim Sykes, "TY", and Dave Shelby. Bill Rock remains the longest running DJ on the station on Saturday nights.
