The King

My good friend TiVo knows that it's supposed to record anything that Elvis Costello appears on, so it dutifully recorded a Saturday Night Live special about the music on the show between 1974 and 1979. It contained the very memorable performance by Elvis Costello where his record company didn't want him to play Radio Radio. So, he started out playing Less Than Zero, but cut it a few seconds in and did Radio Radio anyway. Yeah Elvis! Stick it to the MAN! The only thing that sucked about watching it on this special was that they didn't show it all the way through without interruption. Instead, they spliced in the music editor from back then telling some of the story. Still, it's a great performance and you can watch it here:

dude, my neighbor steve has the whole song on a CD with the Less Than Zero part too. I'll borrow it and make it an mp3 and send it your way. It is totally smokin'. :)
