TCBCast: An Unofficial Elvis Presley Fan Podcast

May 10, 2023

Just a brief technical note: this episode was edited from a backup, so our apologies if there are any audio quality issues. We've "Patched It Up, Baby" as best we can.

This week's TCBCast is structured a little differently, Gurdip does his Song of the Week first while discussing legendary Canadian folk singer-songwriter Gordon Lightfoot's recent passing at age 84, digging into Elvis' version of Lightfoot's "(That's What You Get) For Loving Me."

Then, our main topic and Justin's Song of the Week meld together as he gives an abbreviated biographical sketch remembering the life of Elvis' Sun Records peer Billy "The Kid" Emerson, writer of "When It Rains, It Really Pours" as well as the rockabilly classic "Red Hot," as Emerson passed away on April 25 at age 97.

Next week, we dig into Elvis' time on the Louisiana Hayride!
