65 years ago this year, Elvis made two appearances on Milton Berle's popular variety program, once on board the U.S.S. Hancock and another back in Los Angeles. As voted by the TCBCast patrons, Justin & Gurdip are looking at both, and offering perspectives on the fallout from the latter performance, which gave way to the first major wave of controversy and backlash against Elvis.

The two Songs of the Week that won the monthly patron poll made it an extremely tough choice between the two for Gurdip, but ultimately he settled on "Love Me," the Leiber/Stoller country spoof that Elvis played completely straight, while Justin digs into Lowell Fulson's blues classic "Reconsider Baby," with both songs having been featured throughout Elvis's entire career.
