AirPlay Direct is pleased and honored to deliver the Elvis Presley – “If I Can Dream” Radio Special to our radio station members around the world.

Elvis Presley never got the chance to sing in front of a symphony orchestra. But decades after his death, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra got the chance to play behind him.

Priscilla Presley worked with producers Don Reedman and Nick Patrick to combine some of Elvis' classic vocal performances with a big, lush sound. Plus, they invited special guests to join - Duane Eddy, Il Volo and Michael Buble, who sang a duet with Elvis.

“This fantastic radio special is an intimate look inside at Elvis’ passion for his music, his never-ending quest for perfection, and his burning desire for self-validation, the respect of his peers, and most importantly the love and admiration of his fans. Elvis with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra… truly remarkable.”   --Robert Weingartz, Chairman – AirPlay Direct

Anthony DeCurtis hosts this one-hour special that chronicles how the project came about through interviews with Priscilla, Don, Nick and Michael, and it features a lot of music. Priscilla Presley, Michael Buble, and “If I Can Dream” album producers tell the story of how they created these brand-new symphonic recordings that Elvis never got to make while alive.

This radio special is also great for Thanksgiving, Winter Holiday breaks and Elvis birthday celebrations in January.
