TechnoRetro Dads

Electra-Woman and the Rats of NIMH

 

Greetings, Programs!  

 

Timothy is sick and he must not get out of bed for the next six weeks.  The frost is off the ground and the farmer has started his tractor.  Moving Day is here.  What will the Brisby family do?  Consult the Great Owl and take a trip under the rose bush to meet with the leader of the rats for the solution.

 

JediShua and shazbazzar dig up memories of The Secret of N.I.M.H. with their kids before retrieving dangerous yard Toys in the Attic this week.  Enjoy a dose of the 70s and 80s with opinions and commentary on TechnoRetro Dads this Monday morning.  

 

PLUS: Loads of NEWS, Red Hot Super Heroes (Heroines?), and Helium Balloon Theater.  Be sure to let the ‘Dads hear about your favorite Super in red, share your opinions about the new Star Wars cereal, submit your JAWS Seaquel, or just chime in about anything #TechnoRetro by sending your voicemail to (209)TR-TRDad, (209)878-7323, recording a voice message and sending it via electronic-M to podcast@technoretrodads.com, posting on Facebook, or tweet @TechnoRetroDads.  

 

 

It’s 77 minutes of fun and fandom this Monday morning on TechnoRetro Dads!

We hope that you had a great Father’s Day, celebrating your Dad or being celebrated as a Dad.  Now that summer has officially begun, and the longest day of the year is in the rear view mirror, shazbazzar and JediShua get in the TechnoRetroMobile and head out to the beach at Amity Island to enjoy a day of fun in the sun.  But who knows what may be lurking just below the surface…

 

Over the weekend, JAWS turned 40!  So the ‘Dads sat down with their kids and watched this classic film from 1975 with some surprising responses.  Maybe JAWS does hold up well over the years.   

 

 

PLUS: JediShua digs the old Slip ’N Slide out of the attic as shazbazzar eats yet another bowl of Cookie Crisp.  Be sure to let the ‘Dads hear about your favorite Super in red, share your opinions about the new Star Wars cereal, submit your JAWS Seaquel, or just chime in about anything #TechnoRetro by sending your voicemail to (209)TR-TRDad, (209)878-7323, recording a voice message and sending it via electronic-M to podcast@technoretrodads.com, posting on Facebook, or tweet @TechnoRetroDads.

Summer has kicked off with loads of NEWS, some bad and some good, with memories of the past and some eggspectations about the future, shazbazzar and JediShua jump in with both feet!  

 

PLUS: Executive Chef and SuperFriend Armando speeds up the conversation with his RedHot Super Summer submission: The Flash.  He and JediShua reveal that there’s more to this 75 year-old speedster than is immediately apparent.  Don’t forget to let the ‘Dads hear about your favorite Super in red, share your taste in cereal with the Cookie Cop, submit your JAWS Seaquel, or just chime in about anything #TechnoRetro by sending your voicemail to (209)TR-TRDad, (209)878-7323, recording a voice message and sending it via electronic-M to podcast@technoretrodads.com, posting on Facebook, or tweet @TechnoRetroDads.  

 

 

Top it off with jokes, science, and a Helium Balloon Theater tribute to Christopher Lee’s performance in The Last Unicorn, and you have 77 minutes of #TechnoRetro good times this Monday morning.

RedHot Super Summer begins with the Dad of a whole family of Supers — Mr. Incredible!  Jorbex and Dave$ join shazbazzar and JediShua in a fitting tribute to the heroic TechnoRetro Dad of The Incredibles.  Find out why Bob Parr kicks off the summer as the first red-clad Superhero of the season.

 

But before trying on that old super suit that used to fit so well, sit down on the couch with D.A.R.Y.L. and enjoy a 30 year-old sci-fi classic about a boy who hits homers in Little League by day and flies an SR-71 by night.  He looks like he’s all boy, but he’s really a Data Analysing Robot Youth Lifeforms — a human body with a computer for a brain (don’t ask… never ask in an ‘80s sci-fi flick).  JediShua’s and shazbazzar’s families provide their insights into Barret Oliver’s second-most well-known feature.

 

 

Let the ‘Dads hear about your favorite Super in red, share your taste in cereal with the Cookie Cop, submit your JAWS Seaquel, or just chime in about anything #TechnoRetro by sending your voicemail to (209)TR-TRDad, (209)878-7323, recording a voice message and sending it via electronic-M to podcast@technoretrodads.com, posting on Facebook, or tweet @TechnoRetroDads.

Can you believe it was 30 years ago when we first joined Mikey, Data, Mouth, and Chunk in their High Adventure to find One-Eyed Willy’s treasure?  Yep.  It’s true.  The Goonies turns thirty this week with a story that never grows old (just like Goonies never really grow up)!  JediShua and shazbazzar welcome Glen Nelson and John Dotson to talk about Richard Donner’s classic misfits movie and share it with their families.

 

But our SuperFriends from High Adventure have more to share with the TechnoRetro Dads this week as they introduce their upcoming fifth album High Five.  This fan rock compilation will be their first to be recorded in a full-fledged studio, and you can help make it happen on pledgemusic.com.  As of today, they are 15% funded towards their goal to get all eight members of the band into the studio to record more instant classics from the heart of fandom that will be released this fall.  PLUS you can get all kinds of bonuses by supporting this effort, like instant downloads, signed CDs, hand-written lyric sheets, personal band performances, and a TechnoRetro exclusive dog-walking by bassist and mixmaster John Dotson himself!  Click here to check out all the information on the new album and discover all the great bike-riding, golf-playing, costume-designing goodness available NOW!

 

With a plush Falcor in the NEWS, Bill Nye on Netflix, and a record-breaking hoverboard experience on a Canadian lake, this week is filled with misfit might for you to share and enjoy this Monday morning.   

 

There are lots of ways to play along with the ‘Dads through JAWS Seaquels, red-clad superheroes, cereal challenges, and more. You can be a part of all things #TechnoRetro by sending your voicemail to (209)TR-TRDad, (209)878-7323, recording a voice message and sending it via electronic-M to podcast@technoretrodads.com, contacting us through Facebook or Twitter, and chiming in with your comments, questions, and ideas.

 

So get up on the right side of the work week with TechnoRetro Dads today!
