TCBCast: An Unofficial Elvis Presley Fan Podcast

Jaime Kay from The Jungle Room Podcast and Ashley Drew from the Ashley Drew Adventures YouTube channel join Gurdip for a great discussion this week on some of their most interesting Elvis discoveries! But before that - which of the two ladies will prevail in this week's trivia challenge? Then, for Song of the Week, Ashley highlights the doo-wop-esque 1956 ballad "Is It So Strange." Jaime Kay sheds a light on "Tomorrow Is A Long Time," the 1966 track songwriter Bob Dylan called "the one recording I treasure the most" and Gurdip finishes off the episode with a dip back into the doo-wop well with...

TCBCast: An Unofficial Elvis Presley Fan Podcast

Gurdip is joined by TCBCast regular 3rd host, and Top Rope Nation podcast host, Ryan Droste, for a look at Elvis' appreciation of and connections with the pro wrestling world, both when he was alive and living in Memphis, and his posthumous influence on later wrestlers like Honky Tonk Man and The Rock. It's a surprisingly fascinating topic with neat historical tidbits some Elvis fans might not be aware of! Then for Song of the Week, Ryan thinks it's great to be in that 50th state as he picks the title track from "Paradise, Hawaiian Style." Gurdip follows up with the bluesy early 60s cut "I...

TCBCast: An Unofficial Elvis Presley Fan Podcast

We open this week's episode paying homage to the legendary Little Richard, who brought an electricity and vibrancy to rock and roll that no one, not even Elvis, could quite capture. Rest in peace, Richard. Justin's getting married this week so it's an otherwise lighter episode this week as the discussion turns to how their Elvis fandom has affected their families, who are stuck with them (and Elvis, by default). Following that theme for Song of the Week, Justin and Gurdip's wives provide their favorite songs (we couldn't convince either to come on the show) so Justin dives into the lengthy...

Justin invites Gurdip deep into the Elvis remix archive for a look at some of the most interesting and unique unofficial remixes. From rockabilly overdubs with connections to the Stray Cats, to reggae, country, rock and rap genre twists, there's something here for everybody! Gurdip himself even gets remixed mid-show! For Song of the Week, Gurdip's is the ballad to a lovely work of art, "Mona Lisa," while Justin picks "Peter Gunn," the detective TV theme Elvis played around with at rehearsals. Coincidentally, they discover that the two seemingly different songs share some songwriting history!

TCBCast: An Unofficial Elvis Presley Fan Podcast

The TCBCast crossovers continue as Gurdip & Justin are joined by "Talking Elvis" co-hosts, Ian & Vince for a lively discussion about all things Elvis, including their history keeping the Elvis flame alive in the UK. Gurdip takes the hotseat next to Ian and Vince for a trivia showdown, and then, for Song of the Week, the guys turn the keys to the TCBCast car over to Talking Elvis! Vince selects the funereal "Long Black Limousine" from 1969, and surprises with an earlier soul version that Elvis likely took influence from. Finally, Ian feels his temperature rising higher and higher, as he...

This week, Justin & Gurdip join forces with the hosts of the A Little More Conversation podcast!

Then, during a packed Song of the Week section, Jason leads with the adult contemporary ballad "Twenty Days and Twenty Nights" from 1970, while Shane pulls the classic Gordon Lightfoot cover, "Early Mornin' Rain." Gurdip follows up with the all-too-short...

On this week's bonus content, Ryan and Justin go for take 2 of their overview of Elvis' home recordings. If you're finding yourself stir crazy while under stay at home orders, perhaps you'll find the same sort of enjoyment from Elvis' home recordings that Elvis seemed to take from making them while singing at home.

Justin & Gurdip are joined this week by Roy Hamilton, Jr, the son of famous "Rock'n'Soul" icon Roy Hamilton, who was a major influence on Elvis' musical style and development. Roy graciously spent some of his Easter Sunday answering questions about his father's influence on rock and roll, connections to Elvis, and how the Hamilton family has continued Roy Sr.'s legacy over the years.

More Episodes

To celebrate the holidays, Justin & Gurdip finally review the original iteration of Elvis' 1957 Christmas Album. Does this perennial favorite still hold up, or are the real holiday gems only on the first half of the album? Plus, Justin has a theory about why Elvis' Christmas music remains so popular decades after release (aside from it just being good!)

Gurdip's Song of the Week highlights Elvis' striking cover of a song written by a Canadian First Nations artist. Justin, on the other hand, finds surprising Elvis connections elsewhere in the history behind a rare one-off audience recording of "When The Snow Is On The Roses." Gurdip is off for the rest of the year, but next week, Ryan Droste returns for a review of the only officially authorized Elvis video game!
