Hosted by Glenn and Phil, this podcast is a virtual trip back in time to the halcyon days of our childhood - the 1980s (and early 1990s). Every week we explore at least one facet of 80's pop culture, discuss questions from our listeners, and report the news from at least 4 of the main franchises of the 80's that are still around today!
Episode 127

This week sees Phil and Glenn taking a look at what your top 5 gameshows of the 1980s are, and discussing the all of the news. Which let's face it, due to it being nearly Christmas, there's not much of. Fear not however, because in the next couple of weeks there shall be a battle of the Christmas songs, to see which one is the greatest. And it shall be good. Oh yes, it shall be good.

When the Music Stops: Autobots Fight Back

This week's readalong confection is a return to the Ladybird Transformer universe, where the Autobots are learning more and more about the strange planet of Earth, and the Deceticons yet again get the wrong end of the stick and misunderstand Earth technology.

Such fun!

When the Music Stops: Star Trek and Spider-Man

Yes folks, because there's no regular podcast this week (thanks, Glenn), we'll have a double dose of readalong goodness, shall we?

This week, from Power records, it's two adventures from 1975, with the crew of the Entreprise having a tricky time with wine as they find out 'In Vino Veritas', then we relocate to New York to see how Spidey deals with 'The Bells of Doom'!

Episode 126

This week sees Phil and Glenn looking at one of the quintessential 80's gameshows, with one of the quintessential 80's gameshow hosts - Bob Monkhouse! Yes folks, it's time to take a trip to Bob's Full House, where, as Bob himself would always say, the doors are always open for you!

There's also all the news that we can gather together this week, and a question or two about 80's computers, and a poser about immortality itself...hopefully we won't be playing the Game of Rassilon here at BTTE Towers though. Not quite yet, anyway.

When the Music Stops: Zoids - The Legend of Heroic Combat

Hark, gentle listener, and pray silence for the Namer, Guardian of the Names of Power, as he guides you through the wastelands of what once was the planet Zoidstar, and introduces you to the many and varied combatants in the war between the forces of the Red and Blue ZOIDS!

(With many, many thanks to Grufflock for providing me with this weeks audio!)

Episode 125

This week's edition of the podcast that travels back through time in a rose-tinted DeLorean sees Jii joining Glenn and Phil once more, as they take a look at what YOU think about Disney's recent acquisition of Lucasfilm and the Star Wars franschise. But that's not all, as they also take a look at all the news that's fit to discuss this week, including the casting news of the fourth Transformers movie, as well as some Turtles Lego and Masters of the Universe news.

We also look at our 80's guilty pleasures, and Jii attempts to disturb the others into not sleeping tonight. *shuddertwitch*

When the Music Stops: Back to the Future

Remember, remember, the 5th of November. No, not for Guido Fawkes, silly, for the night that Doc Emmett Brown invented time travel!

Episode 124

It's Channel 4's 30th anniversary this week, and Back to the Eighties marks this with a look back at some of it's greatest (and not so greatest) moments! From lesbian kisses to doing anything to get on television, it's time to keep an eye on 4!

There's also plenty in the news to keep us occupied this week too, with a certain House of Mouse taking over a certain Star of Death...but do Glenn and Phil have a bad feeling about this, or will the Force be with us?

WARNING: May contain Glenn and Phil singing Australian soap opera themes.

When the Music Stops: The Story of Dracula

Happy Hallowe'en! No intro this week, just the absolute brilliance of Christopher Lee, narrating the terrifying story of Dracula! Yes, that's Dracula himself, narrating his own story. That's meta for you.
