"The Last Broadcast" with Red's special guests Pat O'Day and Bruce Allen, aired on CISL650/Vancouver on August 27, 2017. In this excerpt, the guys reflect on Elvis' untimely death on August 16, 1977.
"Pat O’Day chimes in. 'It’s as good a time as any, Red, to spell one thing out. Why did Elvis pass away? It was really simple when you get down to it: he suffered from an inflammation in the lining of his heart. The same thing that had cost his mother her life. He'd had rheumatic fever in his youth, back when rheumatic fever was untreated, and he was left with heart inflammation that eventually brought on the end of his life - not a drug overdose.'”
