Episode 26 – Halloween III

There’s no law saying Halloween can’t be extended beyond October 31, so we’re keeping the spirit alive with an added episode which asks the question, “Why did Pete make Jon watch Halloween III?” The answer is simple: so we could do a podcast episode on it!

Halloween III gets a lot of grief because it doesn’t feature Michael Myers as the antagonist and is an outlier in the series. It’s also gained a cult status over the years as the oddity in what became an increasingly odd series. But does that mean it’s any good?

It does have America’s Treasure Tom Atkins going for it, so…

Epsiode 24 – Full Moon Radio

full-moon_1500x500

As celebrators of earnest awfulness at the Sobadcast, there’s something about listening to an enthusiastic caller sharing their experience sharing a couple of tall ones with a mullet-sporting sasquatch on some backwoods Washington State logging trail that just sits right with us. All the better that you couldn’t tell who was nuttier, the callers or the hosts.

As an homage to those paranormal radio shows like Coast to Coast AM hosted by Art Bell, George Noory and the like, we present you some archival footage of the little-known Full Moon Radio show with host Pat Moon (and guest host Philipander Poon). Sponsored by Aqua Velva.

What beats a paradox? A full house. Actually, hell if we know, but that doesn’t stop us from talking about Netflix and J.J. Abrams’ Super Bowl surprise – another entry in the Cloverfield series. By now even your pet guinea pig, Colonel Squeaker has weighed in on this one, but we’ve decided to take a crack, too. Hey, we never said we were timely.

Podcasts are dropping left and right analyzing the latest Star Wars blockbuster, The Last Jedi. But one major plot point that’s not being discussed in all these podcasts is, “What happened to that Star Wars disco record?”

On this episode, we’re taking it back to the funky Seventies to talk about the brief era where John Williams’ iconic themes were slapped and slathered with a jazzy disco sheen. We also go in depth on the album below by noted* jazz funk surf legends, the Jeff Wayne Space Shuttle. If you have any desire to listen to some, err, interesting interpretations on the Star Trek, Planet of the Apes TV show as well as the Superman and Batman themes, check out this blog post from 2012 that has a link to access .mp3 files of the entire album.
