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!
When the Music Stops: Batman - The Warhawk

This week's tale of derring-do (about half eleven, sir) comes from 1989, and is again from Ladybird, who seem to have made a good living in the 80s by making some awesome readalong books. In this tale, the Penguin makes off with a government super-plane (think Firefox), and of course, there's only one man in the world who can stop him - the Dark Knight himself!

Top Tip: listen out for the great music bookending this one, in the style of Prince's 'Batdance', but not - if you see what I mean.
