No, you're not mistaken. This is a proper TCBCast dropping on a Sunday - because ya'll are getting a double dose of the show this week!
In this episode, Gurdip and Justin catch up on the very latest news from Baz Luhrmann's Elvis, including Eminem's big single "The King and I," before Justin sits down with Rabia, who appeared on the show last December.
Rabia gives us a breakdown and essentially a mini-walkthrough of Graceland's official exhibit at the Bendigo Art Gallery in Bendigo, Victoria, Australia. This exhibit is running until July 17, 2022 so we wanted to make sure we got this covered and didn't lose it in the hype around the movie before the event ends for our Aussie listeners.
Then, Justin celebrates the title track from 1958's "King Creole" as Song of the Week in all its glory, while Gurdip spotlights the poppy, lightweight track "I'm Not the Marrying Kind" from 1962's "Follow That Dream."
More information about the Direct from Graceland exhibit at the time of this episode's posting is available here: https://www.bendigoregion.com.au/bendigo-art-gallery/exhibitions/elvis-direct-from-graceland. Rabia's new show, "Suddenly: A Frank Sinatra Film Podcast" will be coming to most major podcast platforms in the near future.
