On 5th July 1954, a 19-year-old Elvis Presley walked into Sun Studio and recorded three tracks. To mark the anniversary of Elvis's historic recording, Hollywood actor and musician Sam Palladio hosts That's All Right: 60 Years On, live from Sun Studio in Memphis.
Having recorded Harbor Lights and I Love You Because, Elvis began an impromptu version of an Arthur Crudup song called That's All Right. Producer Sam Phillips instantly knew that he was onto something very different, as did bass player Bill Black who yelled: 'Damn, get that on the radio and they'll run us out of town!'. That's All Right would go on to make Elvis a star, and some argue it was the first ever rock and roll record.
Tonight, live from the now legendary Sun Studio, artists including The Pierces, Laura Bell Bundy and Candi Staton will be performing the songs Elvis recorded that night as well as other classic Elvis tracks. Performances will be broadcast live into the Dermot O'Leary Show (3-6pm) today; the celebration then continues in this programme as Palladio has interviews with those who knew Elvis, as well as further special performances and little-known anecdotes as the story of the first 19 years of Elvis's life and his obsession with music - from gospel, blues to rock and roll - is told.

Available until 12 July.

There's been a lot of That's All Right plays on BBC radio over the last couple of weeks, so much so that I'm beginning to get a bit bored with the track, and I've been enjoying the alternate take:
