    One Crazy Summer

    One Crazy Summer

    You may have heard, but Buzzn The Tower is more than just a podcast. As 80s film historians we have a moral obligation to educate our friends, our enemies and our communities. Today we evoke our civic duties as we talk about a hidden gem called One Crazy Summer. By the time this episode is over, you’ll understand why this movie is a summer classic. I’m Mo Shapiro and joining me as always the Clay Stork to my Egg Stork, Max Sanders. And with that, OH YA THANK YOU I WILL HAVE SOME COOKIES!!!

    Remembering Richard Donner

    Remembering Richard Donner

    On July 5th, 2021 the world lost an entertainment icon. At the age of 91, Richard Donner left a legacy very few will ever come close to even touching. You cannot talk about the 80s without mentioning his work and his impact on cinema. ClarK Kent, One-Eyed Willy, Murtaugh and Riggs and a hawk that was a lady, all owe a debt of gratitude to one of Hollywood's greatest directors. On today's episode of Buzzn The Tower we'll look back at the films Donner made during the 1980s and talk about a man who's talent was only rivaled by his kindness. I'm Mo Shapiro and joining me as always, the Chunk to my Mikey, Max Sanders. And with that... "Our parents they wanted the bestest stuff for us, but they got to do what's best for them, cuz it's their time, their time up there. Down here it's our time, it's our time down here! That's all over the second we ride up Troy's bucket."

    Epic 80s Movie Scores

    Epic 80s Movie Scores

    The very first episode of Buzzn The Tower was called Radical 80s Movie Jams. We covered everything from Kenny Loggins Danger Zone to Ray Parker Jr's Ghostbusters. Today we head back to the realm of music with our eyes and ears on some of the most epic theatrical scores ever composed. These works of art create suspense, evoke emotions and sometimes are as popular as the movies themselves. So sit back, grab a glass of wine and enjoy a MOST… sophisticated journey to the classical music of the 80s. I’m Mo Shapiro and joining me as always, the cello playing Dana Barrett to my Vigo the Carpathian, Max Sanders. And with that, let’s get classy.

    Sand the floor. Paint the fence. Get a bodybag and get ready for the All-Valley Karate Tournament, because today we're taking one of the best movies around and replacing the beloved characters with other stars from the 80s. We'll have to make tough decisions and commit to our choices. Win, lose, no matter. You make good fight, earn respect then nobody bother. I'm Mo Shapiro and joining me as always, the Daniel-san to my Mr. Miyagi, Max Sanders. And with that, let's recast The Karate Kid!

    The 80s Collector Part 2 With Graham Elliot

    The 80s Collector Part 2 With Graham Elliot

    In Part 1 Buzzn The Tower started building its fantasy collectors museum. From Lloyd Dobler's boombox to Axel Foley's jacket our collection had a strong start. Today we pick up where we left off, we'll continue to fill our airplane hanger with 80s movie memorabilia that would make Spielberg himself jealous. But this time we have a little help... I'm Mo Shapiro and joining me for the first time, the Swedish Chef to my Hurdy Gurdy Gurdy, Graham Elliot. And with that let's build our collection!

    Building The Perfect 80s Dad

    Building The Perfect 80s Dad

    Good advice, bad jokes and questionable fashion sense. The rad dads of the 80s had it all! Today we’ll celebrate Father’s Day by hand picking bits and pieces of our favorite 80s dads and Frankensteining the mother of all…. or father of all patriarchs. I’m Mo Shapiro and joining me as always the Danny to my Jack Torrance, Max Sanders. And with that, let's get to work!

Refreshing

A much needed departure from the political podcasts, the guys at Buzzn The Tower make any gen-x 80s fan feel right at home with their comical reviews of everything awesome about the best era, the 80s! Their recasting episodes are super cool, especially back to the future. Rodney Dangerfield as a sub for Christoper Lloyd… I nearly spit my coffee out in laughter!!! @rem0 on instagram.
