Arts club classic Vancouver, 1957. Five teens come of age while DJ Red Robinson plays the biggest hits of the time—from the raucous “Great Balls of Fire” and “Jailhouse Rock” to ballads like “Diana” and “Crying.” This infectious musical captures the excitement and innocence of the city’s burgeoning rock ‘n’ roll scene.

About Red

Red Robinson’s roots go back to the beginning of Rock’n’Roll.
Red was spinning the hits on Vancouver’s CJOR while still in high school in 1954. He was the first DJ to play rock’n’roll music on a regular basis in Canada. In 1957, Red jumped to Vancouver Top 40 giantCKWX, where he met Buddy Holly and Elvis and was MC for Elvis’ appearance.
In 1964, Red introduced The Beatles on the same stage where Elvis appeared seven years earlier.  I couldn’t wait to talk to Red about his life and times with legends such as:
Wynonie Harris , Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry, Ritchie Valens, Bobby Darin, Little Richard, Fats Domino, Elvis, Buddy Holly, Sam Cooke, James Brown, Ray Charles, The Every Brothers.
