Elvis impersonator serenades Jerome McDonnell and Tony Sarabia on today's Worldview

There is nothing like being serenaded by an Elvis impersonator over the phone. That's what happened today on Chicago Public Radio's Worldview. It was probably a weird choice of songs, but maybe I'm just jealous. Here's the write-up from the segment and, of course, the audio:
Brush up on your ETAs or Elvis Tribute Artists as the world celebrates the King's 75th birthday this Friday. For this week's Global Notes, Tony and Jerome dug up two of the world's most noteworthy ETAs. Meet El Vez (Robert Lopez), the Mexican-American political ETA, as well as the nine-time, international 1st place Elvis impersonator, Ray Guillemette Jr. Ray has traveled the world with his show "A-Ray of Elvis." He serenades Tony and Jerome with an a cappella version of the classic, "Love Me Tender."
