Hosted by Glenn, Sam, Becca, Paula 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!
When the Music Stops: Scooby-Doo and the Mystery of the Rider Without a Head

This week's story sees us join Scooby-Doo and the rest of Mystery Inc., as we see them try and discover why a mysterious headless horseman is attempting to break up a local rodeo!

Bloody meddling kids. Can't keep their sodding noses out, can they?

Episode 134

Join us, dear listener, as Glenn and Phil read out YOUR memories of the 1990 TMNT movie, and discover that video piracy was more rife than anybody ever thought possible!

Also in this week's show, NEWS! With subjects as diverse as GI Joe and Voltron, and a certain shop owner seems to be very popular in the newsgathering field this week. We then answer a question or two in our customary shambolic style!

WARNING: experiments in the field of Sprite/pubic hair may be mentioned.

When the Music Stops: Superman - Double Trouble

This week's offering is from the back end of the Eighties, 1989 to be exact, and it sees Superman battling aliens intent on taking over the world! It seems that the aliens might have done the impossible, and actually beaten the Big Blue Boy Scout! What happens next? Well, the only way to find out is to carry on, dear listener, and remember; when the music stops, turn your cassette over!

Episode 133

Things get Turtley Tubular tongiht, as Glenn and Phil spotlight the 90's classic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, and see if it's aged well like Splinter, or it's complete and utter turtle soup. And don't think we've forgotten about the kickin' New Jack soundtrack either - we take a look at that too! Illin'.

Also in this week's show, finally, GI Joe news in general, and in particular news of Retaliation, including a release date! As well as that, news from Transformers, Star Wars, Thundercats and even a Battle Beasts update! Ambassador, with all of your news, you are truly spoiling us.

Happy New Year! This week sees the return of Jii with Glenn and Phil, as the guys take a peek at what you got for Christmas this year, as well as what you hope will happen in the world of geekery during 2013.

There's also all of the news to take a gander at, including some rather strange news concerning Mattel and Wal*Mart, the gradual let down that is Transformers Beast Hunters, and some cracking news from the world of the Turtles!
