    (I posted this in the music section 'cause I figured it more appropriate)

    Has anyone seen this outstanding show? It consists (so far) of Elvis leading off the show performing his take on one of the show's guest's songs, followed by a talk-show format discussion (music-oriented) with the guest, followed by more performances.

    I am totally hooked.

    Here are the playlists of the first two episodes:

    Episode 1 with Elton John
    “Border Song” by Elton John
    Performed by Elvis Costello and band
    (Allen Toussaint, James Burton, Davey Faragher, Pete Thomas)
