ABU Podcast #66 - 1970s Special DOWNLOAD






Here's the latest ABU Podcast and as promised it's a 1970s special.

It was a blast going through tons of old tunes, and trying to pick out stuff was extremely difficult as there was just so much choice - there will definitely have to be another one.

Listen in the Player above or click the Download option (also in the above Player).

The tracklisting is below but I recommend you listening 'blind' and seeing if you can guess the audio first.

Cheers,

Mr Repo

Welcome along to this edition of the ABU Podcast #66.

We're trying something different this time and taking an excursion way into the past, right back to the 1970s. So expect a trip down Memory Lane as we delve into some long-forgotten television theme tunes - some you may remember and others you may well have forgotten for good reason.

The 1970s is having somewhat of a renaissance recently and I'm more drawn to the spooky side of it. So that involves the worrying public information films that used to be shown very frequently during kids' tv and also the emergence of a musical genre called Hauntology which is a modern throwback to the unnerving synthesizer pieces you may have heard during those PIFs.

Anyway, sit back and enjoy the show. I've given this a 5-headphone rating so you'll enjoy more in a quiet darkened room with a pair of headphones on. Preferably with a can of Tizer and some Spangles.
