    Episode 94: Airheads

    Episode 94: Airheads

    Hello all you OST Party fans out there in radioland! Are you ready to rock?! 
    On this episode we're looking at the 1994 comedy AIRHEADS! Adam Sandler, Steve Buscemi and OST Party fave Brendan Fraser are The Lone Rangers, a down and out LA rock trio. In a last ditch effort to land a record deal, they take a radio station hostage and demand to have their music heard. 
    The movie may be a grim foreshadowing of FM rock radio's future, but the movie's a hell of a lot of fun. And the soundtrack is pretty neat too. We get a slammin' opening credits song from Motorhead and Ice T, a weird Smiths cover from Anthrax, an even weirder Van Halen cover from Four Non Blondes, and naturally, the #1 hit single from the movie's own Lone Rangers! So strap yourselves in and get ready to rock!

    Episode 93: FM

    Episode 93: FM

    We're ringing in the new year with a film we've been wanting to cover for a long time. It's the 1978 cult film FM, about a Los Angeles radio station fighting back against The Man with some of the coolest rock jams of the 70s.
    Or at least, that's what the movie is supposed to be about. Mostly it's an excuse for Martin Mull to ham things up while they shoot a Linda Ronstadt concert. And maybe we'll get celebrity cameos from Tom Petty and REO Speedwagon along the way. It's barely a movie, and not even a good one at that.
    Really though, FM is more famous for its soundtrack album, which is absolutely STACKED with some of the top rock hits of the era. We get two cuts from Steely Dan, including that excellent title track, as well as songs from Bob Seger, Boston, Foreigner, Boz Scaggs, and a whooole lot more! So put on your denim jackets and let's rock & roll!

    SHOW NOTES FOR THIS EPISODE:
    FM is available on DVD, or you can watch it on YouTube

    Episode 92: Buffy the Vampire Slayer

    We may have missed Halloween, but so what? On this episode we take you back to sunny Los Angeles for a look at the soundtrack to 1992's Buffy The Vampire Slayer, the feature film blueprint for one of the most iconic TV series of the 90s.
    This soundtrack is pretty typical of what you'd find on a movie soundtrack in 1992. You've got the requisite covers from artists like Divinyls and Mary's Danish, the sensitive guy rock from Matthew Sweet and Toad the Wet Sprocket, The Cult and Ozzy Osbourne giving us a couple of random metal tracks, and hey why not, have some C+C Music Factory!
    So throw on your leather jackets and sharpen your stakes, because it's time for some Buffy!

    Episode 90: Remembering Pee-wee Herman

    Episode 90: Remembering Pee-wee Herman

    This week we mourn the passing of the incomparable Paul Reubens. His most famous creation, Pee-wee Herman, taught kids of all stripes that there's beauty in the weird and kitschy parts of the world, and that just because we grow up doesn't mean we have to stop being silly.
    And throughout his career, Reubens incorporated lots of music into the Pee-wee persona. So on this episode we'll take you through the musical history of Pee-wee Herman. We'll start with his 1981 stage show, dig into his three feature films, and highlight some of the strange places Pee-wee has popped up along the way. Who knows, we might even make a pit stop at the Alamo!

    Episode 89: Coneheads

    Episode 89: Coneheads

    Greetings bluntskulls! On this episode we celebrate the 30th anniversary of Coneheads! Wayne's World proved there was a market for SNL comedies in the 90s, so naturally here's a movie based on the Coneheads, space aliens from the planet Remulak just trying to fit in among regular humans. It's basically an excuse for Dan Aykroyd to be a big weirdo for 90 minutes.
    And the soundtrack is equally weird. We've got a handful of really great, classic tracks (including an inexplicable hit single from the Red Hot Chili Peppers), a couple of really great cover songs, as well as one of the worst cover songs we have ever covered on this show. And, of course, Dan Aykroyd has to have a song too. A land of contrasts, this album!

MuggerHugger ,

An exceptional podcast

I love this podcast’s premise of reviewing entire works or original soundtracks as opposed to just singular songs. Often times critics will neglect tracks in favor of focusing on more popular works in a soundtrack. This podcast does not make this mistake. I recommend it for any music lover. Oh, and Hosts are as genuine as they come!
