ABU Show #66 TONITE





We're back on the podcast tip tonight.
And we're rolling with Disco Scratch Radio again as well.
Life is good.

This time the show is all about the 1970s; the good, the bad, the frightening, the funky.
There's theme tunes from kids shows you may have forgotten about and some you may wish that you had. Even the more 'adult' shows that you probably weren't meant to watch and should've been in bed at the time.

As the theme is the 1970s then expect some Public Information Films ('PIFs') such as Lonely Water and Play Safe ("JIMMMYYY!!") scattered throughout.
Futurism was a big thing when I was a kid growing up back then. By that term I mean that there was a lot of excitement for the future and big expectations. Films reflected this such as Rollerball and THX 1138 and were typical of the era in that they depicted a rather dystopian future.

There are also a few selections of contemporary music which comes under the genre of Hauntology. These songs hark back to the Seventies with nods to classic synth sounds and a fusion of soundtrack and library music evoking a feeling of childhood nostalgia.

There is not a great deal of actual 'hip hop' in today's episode as obviously it didn't really exist (in recorded form at least) back then. (Did someone say Rappers Delight? Come on now, let's not split hairs, shall we?). But there are a couple of kids' tv-inspired/sampled tunes thrown in for good measure.

Catch us tonight at 9pm.
