Martindale’s “The Elvis Presley Story” explores the career of the world’s most iconic entertainer through insightful and engaging interviews with those who knew him best. It is the most comprehensive history of Elvis ever produced, according to Martindale.

Martindale says he became a huge fan after listening to the first airplay of Presley’s single “That’s Alright Mama” on July 8, 1954 after listening to it from inside the station – WHBQ in Memphis where he worked at the time. Soon after, Martindale had Elvis on his “Top Ten Dance Hour” TV show which would become The King’s first TV appearance.

“I was there at the train station that night, and that’s where I first met Elvis,” Martindale said. “He and I became great friends and remained friends until the day he passed.
