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!
WTMS: Transformers - Attack of the Decepticons

This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this.

Marvel at the adventures of the Kid Stuff Transformers, as Optimus Prime, Prowl, Megatron and Soundwave sit idly and watch action going on, and describe that action to you. Listen in wonder as Optimus Prime discusses the morality of combat in the most tedious way possible, before going back to not doing anything at all.

Oh yes, people. This is the good stuff. After this, the Ladybird audios will have never sounded so sweet.

Episode 147

This week's show sees Glenn, Phil and Jii team up with an awesome power; Superstar Artist and firm friend to the podcast Sam Palmer! Like a mighty buzzard, Sam swoops down and raises the podcast's power to OVER 9000!!!

He joins the boys as they discuss which short films and cartoons YOU liked as a nipper!

We also take a look at the news that's worth looking at this week, as well as answering some questions from a resurrected Mr Bubbles, and everyone avoids death by NOT turning to Page 23.

Turn to page 23.

When the Music Stops: MASK - Double, Double Cross

Masked crusaders are indeed working overtime, fighting crime in this tale of a VENOM agent who finds that perhaps trusting the word of a criminal like Miles Mayhem isn't the best decision he's ever made...lucky for him, Matt Trakker and the MASK crew are there to help him out!

Episode 146

This week's bumper episode features a certain Mr D Tree, who you may or may not know has been to Joecon recently. So we'll be having a good, long 4-hour conversation about that trip, , All the Cool Stuff, Roll Out Roll Call 2013, his thoughts on GI Joe: Retaliation, and life in general!

We also have all the news that matters of our favourite franchises, and sadly say goodbye to one of the hosts of the podcast, as they move on to pastures new! (Good Luck, Brian!)

NB: The homework this week has been put on hold, so you have another whole week to complete it! Use your extension wisely kids!

WTMS: Challenge of the Gobots: Collision Course Comet

Yes folks, When the Music Stops is back, and this time we're bringing you a doozy! All the way circa 1986, it's a tale of cosmic intrigue as the Guardians take on the Rengades with no less than Halley's Comet at stake!

That's Halley's pronounced 'Hal-lees'. Not 'Haw-lees' like you're apparently you're supposed to today. Tsk.

Episode 145

Lots to talk about this week. Glenn's back, Becca's absent. Margaret Thatcher died, Glenn saw GI Joe: Retaliation and wants to talk about it, at length (so SPOILER WARNING if you haven't seen it yet). 

After that though, things get a little less hectic and a whole lot more charming, as Jii spotlights the classic kid's TV show BERTHA!

As for the news: Joecon, Joecon, Joecon. Yep, that was last weekend, so lots of Joe news this week! (Hopefully we'll be having Dave Tree at BTTE Towers again soon to report on how that went this year, as he was lucky enough to attend). There's also a smidgin of Masters news, and a sliver of Turtles, as well as Thundercats and Transformers!

All in all, a very packed show this week. Bon Appetit!
