    Ep 3 - Jamie Benning from Filmumentaries

    Up until now my interviews have been with 80 yr old men who were famous for wearing white suits. Jamie Benning is not 80 yrs old and I’m not sure what colour suits he prefers. Jamie is not a star from the 1980s. He’s the same age as me but he is championing movies from the 80s by means of his fantastic filmumentaries. See my recent blog post for more info about his filmumentaries and you can also visit Filmumentaries.com.

    Watch my Twitter feed later today where I will be running a competition to win a signed poster from Jamie.

    Massive thanks to Jamie Benning for inviting me into his home and letting me interview him for the podcast.

    You can view Jamie’s work at Filmumentaries.com.

    Ep 2 - Brian Jackson - The Man from Del Monte

    Ep 2 - Brian Jackson - The Man from Del Monte

    To all fans of the fantastic Del Monte TV commercials, I hope you enjoy this interview with a charming and fascinating actor.

    I’ve got lots of happy memories watching the Del Monte commercials and watching Brian travel across the globe, tasting fruit juice with local fruit growers hanging on his every nod. They really are classic commercials and it was great to learn a bit more about the man behind the fedora.

    Huge thanks to Brian Jackson for taking the time to appear on the podast, being an amazing guest and for letting me into his home.

    Ep 1 - Alex Cord from Airwolf

    Ep 1 - Alex Cord from Airwolf

    Welcome everybody to the first ever Retromash podcast. Now to be honest I never thought that I would be doing a podcast as a part of the Retromash website. I happen to have a stutter which used to be extremely bad, I wasn't able to speak in many situations, and so I really have to slow down my speech at times and and use a special breathing technique in order to speak well. I hate the sound of my own voice, but I think everyone does, and I never thought I would do a podcast. However, I was offered the chance to interview Alex Cord from Airwolf and, I mean, who can refuse that? It really was fantastic to speak to Alex and I could have spoken to him all night. He's a fascinating man and a true gentleman, and I got so engrossed in the other interesting parts of his life that I didn't actually manage to ask him all the retro Airwolf questions that I had, which is a shame as I'd love to ask him a few more questions about Airwolf but we just ran out of time unfortunately. But I do hope that you find the whole interview interesting as I love to find out more about the people behind the characters that we love and not just ask the standard questions that they must get asked all the time. I do also have to apologise for bits of the recording where the Skype dropped out slightly, particularly in the part around 15 mins or so when Alex was talking about having lunch with Elvis. The Skype connection was horrendous for a few moments, but I've decided to leave it in because, I mean, he's talking about having lunch with Elvis so you kind of have to leave it in! But I do apologise for the sound quality there. I'm hoping that off the back of this one that I can interview a few other people too so stay tuned for some future podcast episodes either of people who were active in the 80s or people who are active now and involved in 80s retro somehow. But I'm an amateur podcaster, I do have a stutter and this is early days, so with that all said, I hope you enjoy the show!

     

    Massive thanks to Alex for taking the time and being an amazing guest, and also to his UK agent Nick Wale for helping set things up.

     

     

    You can find Alex on Twitter at @CordOfficial and on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Alex-Cord-Author/489177407810772.

     

    His books 'A Feather in the Rain' and 'Days of the Harbinger' are both available on Amazon.

A superb nostalgic trip down memory lane

Just want to leave Mikie a 5 star review for his first Ep of this amazing podcast, as I really enjoyed his interview with archangel from air wolf.

Can't wait to see who he interviews next.

A must listen to anyone who grew up in the 80's
