Angie has already been keeping fans entertained with some special broadcasts from inside Graceland during the lockdown.
The first saw the Elvis archivist inside the Jungle Room.
There she pointed out a little known fact about the room that she said fans often miss.
And that’s the St Francis of Assisi statue, the patron saint of animals.
The statue represents Elvis’ love animals, of which he had many at Graceland.
Next, Angie broadcast from the TV room, which houses the King’s record collection.
Here he listened to singers like Dolly Parton and Dean Martin.
While also enjoying some spiritual songs and hymns, plus tracks from the American Civil War.
The Graceland archivist also showed fans around Vernon Presley’s office.
Here is where the King’s father managed the estate and his son’s personal business.
Interestingly, Elvis didn’t appear under the Presley surname in a 1958 Memphis phonebook there.
Maybe the local government were trying to prevent fans calling him up at home.
Angie also showed fans inside Vernon’s safe.
Inside were a pair of Elvis’ sunglasses and a stack of the King’s RCA records.
Other highlights included To and From labels actually addressed to Elvis at Graceland.
While Angie also pointed out Vernon’s bag of rubber bands and daily records for meter readings dated back to 1973.
