    Episode 20 – Jason Bradbury

    Episode 20 – Jason Bradbury

    Jason Bradbury is most well known for being a presenter on The Gadget Show, a show he hosted for 12 years.  I think its fair to say that he is the most geeky person I've had on the podcast, and possibly the most 80s one too!



    We discuss 80s toys, fixing old computers, 80s music, building geeky electronics, breakdancing, DJ-ing, the Trick Stick, 80s icons and SO much more.

    Andy is an addict - he is so addicted to his ZX Spectrum that he's made two and a half films about it!  He's also a published author with over 20 fantasy books to his name.



    He discusses interviewing Spectrum game creators, writing fantasy, how he managed to get an interview with John Romero, and how to blag your way into posh locations to film things.

    Episode 18 – Michael Winslow (feat. Steve Guttenberg)

    Episode 18 – Michael Winslow (feat. Steve Guttenberg)

    Michael Winslow is probably most well known for being Larvell Jones in Police Academy, the guy who made sound effects.  He had landed in the UK 4 hours earlier and kindly agreed to take part in two interviews, one of which was with me.  Shortly after recording the chat to Michael, Steve Guttenberg also agreed to one interview, but over the phone as he was on location in London.  He was on a short break in between filming, so he only had 5 minutes spare.  I asked as much as I could, but our chat was obviously quite short.



    This chat with Michael was recorded in the bar area in the hotel that Michael and Steve were staying in, the day before they were guests at Manchester Comiccon, so please excuse the background clicking of glasses.

    Episode 17 – Paul Bennett

    Episode 17 – Paul Bennett

    Paul in one of my longest friends, not only in length of time but also in height.  I've known him since I was 5, which itself was in 1979.



    At the time of recording this chat, back in late 2018, Paul was a successful music promoter.  In the 9 months between recording and releasing this chat, Paul has made the tough decision to leave music promotion, a job which I'm sure you can tell from his voice that he absolutely loved, and return to a normal day job.

    Episode 15 – Mike Quinn

    Mike is someone whose name you may not have heard of, but whose work you will definitely know.  He is a puppeteer who worked under Jim Henson, performing characters on The Muppet Show, The Dark Crystal, Fraggle Rock, and Labyrinth.   He was also one of Audrey 2's lip sync puppeteers on Little Shop Of Horrors, and brought life to Nien Nunb, an unusual looking character from Return Of The Jedi.... the man is a behind-the-scenes puppeteering god!









    Dreamchild is a superb but often overlooked film which Mike mentions in our chat.  Please check it out here - https://amzn.to/2YnBxeh

    Episode 14 – Top Hat Gaming Man

    Mr. Top Hat Gaming Man is a YouTuber.  He has a huge collection of consoles, computers and handhelds, and he's a fan of R-Type, which is no bad thing.









    This chat is from Play Expo Manchester in 2019. We took care to pick a quiet spot at the far end of the dining area for this interview, only to be joined a few minutes later by a man with 10 kids who all wanted pizza, so please excuse the background noise!
