Red Robinson comes to Mission for book signing

He will be visiting Black Bond Books in the Junction Shopping Centre on Saturday, Nov. 5 at 1:30 p.m.

Legendary Vancouver deejay Red Robinson and author Robin Brunet will be visiting Mission to sign copies of the newly released biography, Red Robinson: The Last Deejay.

They will be visiting Black Bond Books in the Junction Shopping Centre on Saturday, Nov. 5 at 1:30 p.m.

The new book details the life and career of Robinson, one of Canada’s most celebrated pioneers of rock and roll. Robinson began spinning hits while in high school in the early 1950s, laying the foundation for what would become a glamorous and ultimately fulfilling career.

Readers will learn about behind-the-scenes stories from close encounters with Vancouver’s visiting celebrities, like the time Robinson spent an hour with Elvis Presley in the BC Lions dressing room talking cars, women, movies and opera; hung out backstage in Portland with Johnny Cash; and nearly killed Roy Orbison and Bobby Goldsboro in a 1962 Grand Parisienne convertible while speeding to catch the Nanaimo ferry.

Robinson’s vast career highlights are remarkable, from introducing The Beatles to the stage, to interviewing the likes of Buddy Holly and the Everly Brothers, to hosting numerous successful radio and TV shows over many decades.

Black Bond Books is located at 32555 London Avenue in Mission. For more information about the event, call 604-814-2650.
