    Episode Notes
    Its New Years Eve so why not tell 2020 to go Eff itself. Then, once you're done cursing out the arbitrary designation of our temporal placement, why not come back here for a(nother) bonus episode of oops, errors and unconnected conversations. Its sort of left-over audio but we'll be back on Thursday January 14th for our all new and very first episode of 2021. Hope we didn't just curse anything.

    CHRISTMAS EPISODES OF THE 80S & 90S: BAYWATCH EDITION

    CHRISTMAS EPISODES OF THE 80S & 90S: BAYWATCH EDITION

    Episode Notes
    It's Christmas Eve which means waxing up the surf board, slipping on the swim trunks and running in slow-motion across some hot Hollywood beachfront. Or maybe a different tradition. Look, it's been a really off year so, if you are unsure how to celebrate, why not join Tim and guest Jason Dugre as they gather round the Baywatch two-parter "Silent Night, Baywatch Night." It's got David Hasselhoff, Pamela Anderson and ... elves. Yup. Santa's elves are... ahm... are in this Baywatch episode (really, this year has got to stop).

    You can watch today’s guest JASON DUGRE in GILMORE GIRLS (season 4 episode 12: “A Family Matter), GILMORE GIRLS: A YEAR IN THE LIFE (episode 3: “Summer”) and the independent feature film SAINT BERNARD available for rent and purchase on AMAZON PRIME.

    THE YEAR IN OUTTAKES PART ONE

    THE YEAR IN OUTTAKES PART ONE

    Bob and Tim are getting a jump on what should actually be an end of the year exercise. With one new episode still planned for 2020, they are taking today to look back at some previously unstreamed interactions from the past 12 months. Included within are such gems as an injured pinky toe, humans in a Muppet movie, Johnny Nemonic spoilers and a somewhat aroused Huey Lewis. Its a bonus episode to tide you over until ... well.... the Christmas one ... and probably another of these.

    TRAVIS: THE MAN WHO

    TRAVIS: THE MAN WHO

    Travis's album THE MAN WHO is now old enough to drink. It's also Bob’s favorite album which is odd as Tim does not remember it from their turn of century apartment. So today they are traveling track by track to uncover why its so meaningful to one and mistaken for Radiohead outtakes by the other.

    THE SIMPSONS: TREEHOUSE OF HORROR I, II & III

    THE SIMPSONS: TREEHOUSE OF HORROR I, II & III

    Nothing says Halloween like the annual network broadcast of IT'S THE GREAT PUMPKIN CHARLIE BROWN, so thanks again, 2020. In its absence, Bob and Tim are watching another animated classic now owned by another streaming service. It's the first three SIMPSONS TREEHOUSE OF HORRORS, back when it was still known as THE SIMPSONS HALLOWEEN SPECIAL and before it was called ANOTHER EPISODE OF THAT SHOW I USE TO WATCH. Good grief, its the first time they're talking about The Simpsons!

    DISASTER & A TWO WEEK HIATUS

    DISASTER & A TWO WEEK HIATUS

    Normally you’d be hearing “Hey everyone every, my name is Tim Blevins” followed by "20TH CENTURY POP!," or “MENAGE A POP” or some other podcast with the word “pop” in it. But there’s been a glitch. Not in the Matrix but in the production of the show. So here’s that name Tim Blevins telling everyone ever an explanation on what the eff happened, where the eff the shows are and when the eff they are coming back (full disclosure, its in the title of the episode).

    MENAGE A POP RETURNS MONDAY, OCTOBER 26th & 20TH CENTURY POP! RETURNS THURSDAY, OCTOBER 29th!(that's two exclamation points).

Come Back!!!

I found this podcast in late 2020 and I absolutely love it! I am the same age as Tim and Bob and I grew up in the Boston area, so when they talk about their college experience I have a very clear picture of the things and places they talk about. As a child of the 80’s this hits right in the Gen X sweet spot. I’m so bummed they stopped making new episodes. I wish them both the best and hope they come back to podcasting in the near future!

Children of the 80s: A MUST listen.

Fantastic podcast. The hosts are a great duo. The production quality is top notch. Very interesting topics and nostalgia for folks like myself who grew up in the 80s-90s. Keep up the excellent work.

These guys know their $#!%

Of the many things I love about this podcast, Bob & Tim's love of the subject--whatever it might be--is my most favorite thing. We live in a cynical world, as a 20th century film icon once said, yet this podcast celebrates the things we love instead of tearing them down. Which is not to say the guys don't take a realistic & analytical look at those things, and sometimes find them wanting. The show is fun, interesting, sometimes silly and always thought provoking. Also, I cannot oversell the soothing nature of Tim's dulcet tones. 5/5 recommend.
