Mr. Costello’s first guest will be Sir Elton John, who also serves as the program’s executive producer. Here is the projected schedule of guests:

12/3: Elton John,
12/10: Lou Reed + Julian Schnabel,
12/17: Bill Clinton,
12/24: James Taylor,
12/31: Tony Bennett
1/7: The Police
1/14: Rufus Wainwright
1/21: Kris Kristofferson, Rosanne Cash, Norah Jones, John Mellencamp
1/28: Renée Fleming
2/4: Herbie Hancock
2/11: She & Him, Jenny Lewis, Jakob Dylan
2/18: Diana Krall
2/25: Smokey Robinson

Here’s an an interview I did with Elvis four years ago, right after North was released and critics were complaining that he’d turned his back on rock ‘n’ roll. Note how much he gushes over his new wife, Diana Krall. It’s very cute. (Again, the web archives at my former newspaper don’t translate bold type questions very well, so it takes careful reading to know when he’s talking and when I’m talking.)

  1. I’d gush over Diana Krall too.

    Oh wait.

    I already do.

    Wow what a list, and isnt Elvis the most stylish Rocker youve ever seen, and married to Diana Krall, their children will be the hippest kids ever.
