TCBCast: An Unofficial Elvis Presley Fan Podcast

This week, Justin & Gurdip are honored to have Nate Wilcox of the Let It Roll podcast on to talk all things Elvis & early rock history. The guys took inspiration from Nate's show in creating TCBCast, so it was a thrill to chat about how Nate got into Elvis, and hitting topics as far ranging as publishing companies, Colonel Parker, "A Star is Born", the unsung black pop heroes who paved the way for rock, and so much more! This is an episode of TCBCast you absolutely do NOT want to miss! Then, for Song of the Week, Nate picks one of Elvis' most iconic hits, while Gurdip highlights Elvis'...

TCBCast: An Unofficial Elvis Presley Fan Podcast

Gurdip, Justin & Ryan wrap up a lengthy deep dive into Elvis' last feature length film, 1969's "Change of Habit." Justin & Ryan explain why the film resonates with them, from its humor and grounded nature compared to Elvis' other films, to its good-hearted-if-clumsy attempt to address social injustices that are unfortunately still very real today. Then, for Song of the Week, Ryan's so square he exits the show early to go to bed, but you won't care, because Gurdip parties it up tackling the Latin-flavored early 60s dance song "Kiss Me Quick" and Justin goes deep for a one-off jam...

TCBCast: An Unofficial Elvis Presley Fan Podcast

For its 50th Anniversary, Gurdip, Ryan & Justin sit down to review Elvis' final dramatic role in "Change of Habit." Justin ranks it as his favorite Elvis film of all time, Ryan thinks highly of it, but Gurdip's not sold just yet - can his mind be changed? From its formation as a Mary Tyler Moore vehicle, to its status as an early film depiction of autism, "Change of Habit" marks a wildly different type of Elvis film (and, appropriately, a wildly different TCBCast review!) Plus, Gurdip wallops Justin in a head-to-head trivia challenge! Stay tuned next week for Songs of the Week, and the...

Gurdip thanks a listener for a gift, then picks a Roy Orbison classic that we almost got an Elvis version of for Song of the Week. Then, Justin gets spooky with perhaps the most ominous song Elvis ever recorded: a lullaby for "It Happened At The World's Fair"!

TCBCast: An Unofficial Elvis Presley Fan Podcast

What you're listening to are the sounds of two men, burdened with the thankless task of analyzing a film paying homage to their hero so dreadful, so shocking in its nonsensical execution, they wonder that it ever could have come from the pen of a fantasy genius. Witness a game of ironic fate, penned by a writer of a generation who wished to restore a fallen king to an unwanted throne. A throne of bad puns, plot holes, and inexplicable stupidity you can only find... in the TCBCast Zone. Then, for Song of the Week, seriously, go listen to the funky, fun "I Got A Feelin' In My Body," which Justin...

This week, Justin & Gurdip review the first two episodes of the 1990 ABC TV Series "Elvis," starring Michael St. Gerard. Gurdip saw it when it first aired - has it held up? Justin, on the other hand, was just a baby at the time and hadn't seen it in years either; does it live up to the expectations? The guys read three emails from listeners, and then for Song of the Week, Gurdip "supposes" Elvis genuinely appreciated a gem from the Speedway soundtrack, and Justin highlights an upbeat, deep cut country track from the Promised Land LP - and asks for help finding a cover by another 70s...
