    #33: Bananarama - I Heard A Rumor

    Bananas? How could two persons devote over 40-minutes to talking about that? You may be surprised to learn that they can be as sweet to the ears as they are to the palate. Tally 10 picks o' de bunch - none too filling. AND, perhaps, the '20s ain't looking so bad with new grooves from: Shakespear's Sister, Tears for Fears, Duran Duran, Kylie Minogue, Abba, Billy Idol, The Stranglers, Clan of Xymox, Lebanon Hanover, but there's only one act that could ever satisfy AK-47's electro-appetite...

    BONUS Movie-cast: Garbage Pail Kids & Rock N Roll Nightmare

    BONUS Movie-cast: Garbage Pail Kids & Rock N Roll Nightmare

    It's Halloween. Let's try something different. Just as the carousel rotates in reverse: DJ CK1 and the Notorious J.A.M. speak less of music and much more about the art of cinema circa 1987. 1st Half: The Garbage Pail Kids Movie. 2nd Half: Rock 'n Roll Nightmare (aka The Edge of Hell). To listen, however, YOU must take the oath. This is non-official super secret stuff, folks - so no bitching to The Board.

    #34: David Bowie - Loving The Alien (w/special guest: Notorious J.A.M.)

    #34: David Bowie - Loving The Alien (w/special guest: Notorious J.A.M.)

    Torture comes and torture goes. We hope you like David Bowie (or can tolerate him somewhat) because this is our most artist-centric episode to date. We start with with an exclusive interview with a real-life Bowie enthusiast: Notorious J.A.M. of VisArt Video and get a whiff of his top-6 essential Bowie albums. Then (about 40-minutes in) AK-47 bursts onto the scene with yet another hefty smattering of Bowie. Had enough Bowie? Well, our Listener Mails got something to say about the good and bad of... you guessed it... BOWIE! But AK-47 also wants to bitch about those YouTube reaction videos. Ironic, considering that this entire podcast is based on reactions. Granted, most ours are more delayed, usually. If anything's worthy of a reaction, it's this new: Fancy video. Featured Links:

The Man of Cash ,

Great Podcast

I appreciate the research they do for the song/artist. It feels as if it's a "Pop Up Video"podcast. The retro commercials are great.

Funny but also informative

Very personable hosts -- their witty banter is the reason I love to listen! But they are also extremely knowledgeable about '80s music. The editing is superb, smoothly integrating song clips that underscore the reviews and discussion. I love the use of the period advertisements as well -- very funny stuff.

My Favorite!

For anyone with even a casual interest in retro-pop music, this is an the entertaining listen. The hosts are very likeable. I appeciate how they incorporate song clips so I can actually hear a little of what they're talking about. I only wish they would put out new stuff more often, but I'd take quality over quantity. Thus, it's an essential "subscribe."
