Hosted by Glenn and his very special guests, 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!

It's finally here! It's Christmas Eve! And here's the 2018 Back to the Eighties Christmas Special, with our Very Special Guest from the Nerva Beacon, Leigh!

We'll be talking about her Christmasses growing up, the pressies she loved, and the things she would have watched back in the 80s, and we'll also go through the TV schedules of 1984 to see what everyone else would have been watching also!

Nadolig Llawen, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and we'll see you all again in 2019!

Not long now until the big day! Christmas is scant hours away, and we still have our Christmas Special to go!

As a nice aperitif until then, Andy from t'Smorgaspod joins us to talk about what he would have watched at Christmas in the Eighties, non-Christmassy Christmas movies, and the what was on telly on Christmas Day in 1983!

It's still Christmas, lads!

Joining us this week, from Eccentric Earth, it's Amy Walker again, this time talking about Christmasses from when she was a little'un!

Expect toys, telly, comedy, and the TV Christmas listings, this time from all the way back in 1987.

And just think, this time in two weeks, it'll all be over for another year...

So we're going to be joined by various people, to talk about their memories of Christmas in the Eighties, and go through what was on telly when they were wee'uns!

This week it's Duncan's turn, as we talk about Christmas movies, his favourite presents, and what was on TV on the year of his birth, 1986!
