About Our Radio Show
We are a weekly, one hour radio show featuring the music of The Beatles and Elvis Presley. Our goal is to bring joy and happiness to the world through the music of The Beatles and Elvis ... one listener at a time! In addition to the music of "The Mop Tops and The King", we also play a wide variety of artists who have a connection to The Beatles or Elvis. Naturally, we play solo Beatles too! (John, Paul, George and Ringo ... Wings, Travelling Wilbury's, Ringo's All Star Band ... even The Pete Best Band!). We play covers of Beatles and Elvis tunes from other artists ... as well as artists The Beatles or Elvis may have covered. To sum it all up, if we can come up with a relationship between an artist and The Beatles or Elvis, we will play them! We strive to keep the show entertaining and fun ... please check us out!

Steve Chelmsford is the host of "The Mop Tops and The King"
Steve Chelmsford has been a fan of The Beatles and Elvis Presley since he was a young boy. Steve got his start in radio when he met Carl Brownfield and Dusty Fenders, two local radio personalities on "Radio Goldfield", a small station in the middle of the Nevada desert. Steve became a member of "The Carl and Dusty Radio Boogie" writing jingles and other musical pieces. After a couple years on the show, Steve asked the station for his own show and they graciously granted his request! "The Mop Tops and The King" has been on the air since December 2011.
Steve is also a semi-talented musician/songwriter and played in a band called "The Backward Kings" in the late 1970's through the mid-1980's. In a previous life, Steve was a research engineer with the Air Force Research Laboratory for nearly 30 years. He currently resides in Boston, Massachusetts, with his wife Nancy and sons Steven and Paul.
