Episode 321 - The Friday Big Shop
21 Jan 2018 @ 12:39 pm

It's the Back to the Eighties Friday Big Shop, which means that we'll be taking a trip down Memory Lane, and looking at some of the supermarkets in the UK that sadly didn't make it out of the Eighties, or at the very least the Nineties.

Joining Glenn on this meander is none other than Jenny for the World of Crap, so let's grab a trolley, go through the big turnstile and the trolley flaps, and prepare to be disappointed by not being allowed to look down the toy aisle - it's time for some shopping!

Episode 320 - It's Showtime!
14 Jan 2018 @ 02:32 am

Happy 2018 everyone!

In this first show, Glenn's joined by good old Duncan Sparrow from the Podcast in a Half Shell (soon to be renamed) - and this time he's chose to bring forth the 1988 Tim Burton classic spooktacular Beetlejuice!

So be sure NOT to name Him three times (Beetlejuice, not Dunc, obvs) and keep your Handbook for the Recently Deceased with you at all times - this is gonna get weird.

Episode 319 - Merry Christmas, Everyone
22 Dec 2017 @ 07:00 am

IT'S CHRIIIIIIIIIIIIISTMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS!

Joining Glenn for this year's solstice celebrations is Andy Welch from the Smorgaspod Podcast, and together they reminisce about Christmases past, not only the Day itself and all of the lovely build up, but also what was on the telly in the UK on one particular year in the decade we like to refer to as the 1980s!

We at BTTE Towers would also like to wish everyone very Happy Holidays no matter what you celebrate at this lovely festive time of year, and hope that you'll join us for a very exciting 2018!

Episode 318 - Merry Christmas, Mr Cross
9 Dec 2017 @ 04:02 am

With Christmas coming at us fast and furious now, it's time to spotlight another great 80s movie, and this time it's totally unambiguous as to whether or not it's a Christmas movie!

Join Glenn and always special guest Duncan Sparrow, as they look at Richard Donner's 1988 classic Scrooged, starring the inimitable Bill Murray!

Episode 317 - Don't Feed Dahl After Midnight
30 Nov 2017 @ 10:57 am

We're finally into December, and Christmas will soon be upon us! With that in mind, we're going to be spotlighting a classic 80's Christmas movie full of tinsel, lights, food, and the abject horror of taking a gift home, only to find that it turns into a demon that wants nothing more than to kill you and your whole family. Yes, it's Joe Dante's classic, Gremlins! Joining us to unwrap this Christmas treat is none other than the lovely Claire Vaughan, all the way from Chapter Arts in Cardiff!

Episode 316 - Bow To The Masters
26 Nov 2017 @ 04:34 am

It's all about Transformers in 1987 this week, as Andy Welch from the Smorgaspod joins Glenn again, as they have a bit of a natter about probably their favourite era of the Robots in Disguise, where everything went a bit mental, neon colours became the norm, and the term "Masters" got thrown about a bit liberally!

18 Nov 2017 @ 03:26 am

Welcome, Watchers of Illusion, to the Castle of Confusion, to join Glenn and this week's guest, the awesomely talented writer George Daniel Lea, who wants nothing more than to talk about one of this favourite things from the 1980s - the evergreen, amazing game show (for kids, mind) - Knightmare!

Will he be successful in his quest, or will the Catacomb Bite devoure him before the exit to Level 2? Beware, team!

It's a blast from the past this week, as co-founder of Back to the Eighties, Jeremy joins us to check on how the podcast is doing - so quick, look busy! The Boss is here!
