Memphis DJ George Klein was indicted in February of 1977 for fixing a radio ratings poll. On June 13, President Jimmy Carter gets a phone call.

From Elvis.

Carter had the impression that Elvis was "stoned and didn't know what he was saying," according to one biographer. The King was apparently seeking a pardon -- before the trial had been held.

"According to Carter biographer Douglas Brinkley, the President attempted 'to ease Presley out of his paranoid delusions, calming his fears that he was being "shadowed" by sinister forces and that his friend was being framed'...

"but when Elvis called back at 8:45 the following morning, Carter didn't take the call."

Ten weeks later, Elvis died of a drug overdose.
