TCBCast: An Unofficial Elvis Presley Fan Podcast

Oct 19, 2021

First up this week is a farewell to the heartbeat of the TCB Band: the incomparable Ronnie Tutt, who passed away this week.

Then, inspired by TCBCast Patreon supporters' recent topic suggestion covering The Milton Berle Show, Justin & Gurdip head right into Elvis' next TV appearance on The Steve Allen Show on July 1, 1956 (as well as briefly touch on his appearance on Hy Gardner Calling later that night.) In suit and tails, singing to a basset hound and later as "Tumbleweed Presley," the guys mull over whether it was really as bad as people have made it out to be in the intervening decades, including Elvis himself.

Then, for Song of the Week, Justin spotlights the highly overlooked "There Is No God But God" which was sourced from Ink Spots lead singer Bill Kenny. Gurdip, beyond all sense and reason, tries to make a case for "Hey Little Girl" from Harum Scarum. Justin tries harder than the song deserves to give it a fair reading based on his knowledge of how Elvis's films were constructed but still comes up short, despite Gurdip's insistence on liking it. 

Featured Songs of the Week:

Justin: There Is No God But God

Gurdip: Hey Little Girl
