Welcome to They Don't Make 'em Like they Used To. A nostalgic radio show that looks back at pre 1980 movies, the year the host Tosin was born, and fawns over how lovely they were. The show was originally broadcast on Sunshine Radio at St. Mary's Hospital on the Isle of Wight. Regular features include
BONA FIDE CLASSIC
We pick an undisputed giant of Cinema and discuss it
It's wonderful, it's amazing, but I'm the only one who's seen it. This is that neglected film's chance to shine.
MY FIRST TIME
We ask patients in the Hospital to recount the first film they ever saw in the cinema. With an average patient age of 55, we've gotten some amazing stories of what the cinema experience used to be like.
EXCEPTION TO THE RULE
Some times, they do make them like they used to. We pick a post 1980 movie that holds its head high in any era.

81. Whistle Down the Wind, Tender Mercies, Groundhog Day
TONIGHT, she is our resident musical expert, she’s our resident romantic movie expert and still manages to have a nifty sideline in boys movies. Tonight she takes us through Hayley Mills finding Jesus in a Barn, Robert Duvall drinking and singing about the American South years before Jeff bridges pulled off the same trick, and Bill Murray waking up, and waking up and yet again waking up in a small town in Pennsylvania. Welcome to the Sharon Bollen takeover of They Don’t make ‘em Like they used to.
Show 80: In Cinemas Now reviews - Doctor Strange, The Light between Oceans, Streetcat Named Bob,
The section of the show where we give the old movies a rest for a bit and focus on films you can watch in the cinemas right now.
80. Road Movies: It Happened One Night, Two Lane Blacktop, Thelma & Louise
Tonight, we are in the home of the road. Might not have been invented there, but there is arguably no country that has embraced the road like the good old US of A. And Hollywood noticed, resulting in one of the most recognisable movie genres, the road movie. Tonight we have screwball comedy on the road in the 30s, existential youth culture on the road in the 70s, and Girl power on a crime spree on the road in the 90s. It’s going to be fun, Welcome to They Don’t Make ‘Em Like they Used To.
