Legendary Memphis DJ George Klein Has Passed Away

February 6, 2019

Legendary DJ and former FM100 employee George "GK" Klein, passed away yesterday at the age of 83. He was a staple here in Memphis and lived an extraordinary life. He was Elvis Presley's best friend. The two met back in the eighth grade at Humes High School in North Memphis. They were lifelong friends until Elvis Presley's death in 1977. I wish I had asked George more questions about himself. He was so kind and always thinking about others and spent time lifting them up. One of my favorite memories is when George Klein sat down to chat with me about Elvis. You can watch it below. You are already very missed George.
