Let’s Go! #106 – Let’s Rescue Some Old Folks (and some old folks dressed as children)

My Hero Academia brings us a nightmare vision of a society where the superhero economy sees one working well into retirement age. Who will rescue us from THAT catastrophe? On the flip side the Working Buddies take some time off for a family visit, the Banana Fish gang escape to Los Angeles and Planet With has already saved the day with time to spare. Who you gonna call?

Let’s Go! #104 – Let’s Hibernate

Talk about being asleep at the switch, as one of your beloved co-hosts loses the run of himself while working night shifts and reposts this super late! Froppy beds herself down for a filler episode of My Hero Academia, Lupin The Third (or should I say Jim Barnett!) holes up in a country retreat to solve a murder mystery, Planet With tries to retire early and Fenny keeps everybody in Bono Bono up with his singing. Sweet dreams!

Show #168: Toons N' Tunes - Disney & Fleischer In The 1920s & 30s

Click Here To Download (Right Click, Save As)

It's the inaugural instalment of a new recurring feature, where we cast an eye and an ear over the many instances where music and animation collide and how they amplify the potency of both art & artist. Naturally we start at the nascent beginnings of this pairing, from Walt Disney's experimental efforts in Silly Symphonies to the many outings of the Fleischer Brothers' breakout star Betty Boop and on to even stranger sounds than those! Duck noises, censor baiting and depressingly relevant politics await for you to listen up!

Please understand, it can't be helped!
