TechnoRetro Dads

Greetings, Programs!

Memorial Day is about remembering those who have sacrificed their lives in the line of duty.  We hope you enjoy this day of remembrance with family and friends.  But in case you need a dose of #TechnoRetro ear buds, we wanted to give you this stuff to enjoy...

Last year, on Memorial Day weekend, shazbazzar went up to Birmingham for the Alabama Phoenix Festival to meet and speak to Gil Gerard.  We promised to air the Buck Rogers panel, and so here it is.  Gil provides some behind-the-scenes insights about the classic TV series and his thoughts about the past and future of Buck Rogers.  We hope you enjoy these tidbits from the past.

PLUS: Music by High Adventure written by shazbazzar and JediShua.  The military discusses potential for using Godzilla against enemies.  Michael Jackson performs at the Billboard Music Awards.  JediShua goes to Star Wars Weekends and shazbazzar is invited to talk Honor Among Thieves on Star Wars Bookworms.

Greetings, Programs!

Sometimes it seems like the next door neighbor has all the cool toys.  As long as they are willing to let us use their Snoopy Sno-Cone Machine, we are happy to be their friend.  Fix yourself some shaved ice doused in your favorite Kool-Aid flavor and tune in for a mixed bag of TechnoRetro Dads.    

SuperFriend CHRIS LUBY joins JediShua and shazbazzar to discuss the newly published scientific abstract by SuperFriend SATKA compiling FROOT LOOPS data. Shakespeare’s Star Wars is the talk of the Lazy Book Club.  With musical interludes and some retroworthy reminders of days gone by, this episode is classic #TechnoRetro.

PLUS: Music by Chris Hamilton and Justin Roberts.  Really expensive stuff you would love to have in your collection.  The Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge finale.  Mars exists in Utah...sort of. And a brand-new electronic-B by Lost_Mario_Bro releases on May 25.

You can be a part of the discussion as well by contacting us through email at podcast@TechnoRetroDads.com or leave a voice mail at (209)878-7323 (TR-TRDAD). You can also find us on Facebook and Twitter.

Sweeter than Sugar Frosted Flakes and more lovable than the Muppet Babies, Moms deserve as much credit as they can get, so JediShua and shazbazzar revisit some of the things that made childhood special -- thanks to their Moms.  

SuperFriend MICHAEL PRICE talks about his latest addition to the LEGO Star Wars canon with the first episode of The New Yoda Chronicles as well as the shows and movies that inspired him in his retro days.  (And shaz still thinks that JEK-14 would make a great addition to the GRID.)

PLUS: Loads of talk on topics like Tony the Tiger, Skeeter the Muppet, Howie Mandel, Ray Harryhausen, NASA, and an update on the Jim Henson Creature Shop Challenge.  You can be a part of the discussion as well by contacting us through email at podcast@TechnoRetroDads.com or leave a voice mail at (209)878-7323 (TR-TRDAD).

Greetings, Programs!

On Cinco de Mayo and the celebration has not yet begun to wane.  Download and listen early this Monday morning to take advantage of the news and deals still in action on the 5th of May (because tomorrow will feel like Revenge of the Sixth)!  

SuperFriend SHELDON comes back to pass judgment on Froot Loops in more than just a simple taste test, lending his expertise to the continuing Science Project relative to the different (or not-so-different) flavors of Froot Loops according to their colors.

PLUS: Because Kermmit asked, JediShua and shazbazzar provide a rundown of some of this past week’s news and even many of the things we saw or experienced on May the Fourth!  You can be a part of the discussion as well by contacting us through email at podcast@TechnoRetroDads.com or leave a voice mail at (209)878-7323 (TR-TRDAD). You can also find us on Facebook and Twitter. 

(Be sure not to forget the Moms in your life -- Sunday is coming quickly!)
