Gurdip's off this week but Justin is joined by guest (and TCBCast patron!) Darin Evans to take a (not remotely comprehensive) look at the contributions of soprano backing vocalist Millie Kirkham to Elvis' recording career. Millie's distinctive high voice sound is audible on Elvis classics like "Blue Christmas," "She's Not You" and "The Wonder of You" as well as many recordings by other Nashville recording artists, and she is, to note, the only backing vocalist to have recorded & performed with Elvis through all three decades of his career, making her an iconic part of Elvis' musical legacy.

Appropriately, Darin highlights the first song Millie recorded with Elvis, 1957's "My Wish Came True" as Song of the Week, while Justin selects Elvis' cover of Billy Swan's crossover one hit wonder, "I Can Help."
