Million Dollar Quartet
Million Dollar Quartet

Listen
AIR DATE: February 25, 2013

In December 1956, four music legends got together by chance in a small recording studio in Memphis. They were Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis. That chance get-together led to an impromptu recording session that is now one of rock histories fabled stories. In a headline at the time, a local newspaper dubbed the foursome the “Million Dollar Quartet.” That true story inspired the Broadway musical of the same name. “Million Dollar Quartet” recently opened at Harrah’s on the Strip and we’re joined by the four leads of the show.
