TCBCast: An Unofficial Elvis Presley Fan Podcast

Apr 4, 2023

In this mini-TCBCast, Gurdip sits down for a short interview with Brandon Yip, author of the book "Elvis: All Shook Up In Canada," a thorough history of Elvis's only concerts outside the United States in Toronto, Ottowa and Vancouver. As Vancouver locals, Gurdip and Brandon share memories of growing up there as Elvis fans in the 80s, discuss some of Brandon's thoughts as a fan on Baz Luhrmann's Elvis, remixes and favorite albums before they dip into a discussion about Elvis's brief time in Canada in 1957 primarily centered around the Vancouver concert. 

This episode was recorded before the passing of Red Robinson on April 1, 2023. As you'll hear them talk about, Red was instrumental in getting Elvis up to Canada and remained a huge Elvis enthusiast to the end of his life. Rest in Peace, Red!

Brandon's book is available at the link below in both physical and e-book formats and features interviews with fans and media members, rare photos of Elvis taken in Vancouver as well as reflections from several prominent Canadian music industry personalities, including Red Robinson - it's TCBCast-(and Gurdip especially!)-recommended!
