Enjoy Stuff: A TechnoRetro Podcast (Music Special)

’Tis the season of Star Wars with The Rise of Skywalker, and of course the ‘Dads seen it…once or twice.  Now shazbazzar and JediShua go window shopping and find special last-minute gifts for each other in the spirit of Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas (or The Gift of the Magi, if you prefer).

Take 77 minutes of music with you on your last day of work and final shopping trips this weekend with tunes by Buster Poindexter, Kurt Russell, John Kirby, The Monkees, Brian Setzer, Yogi Yorgesson, Danger Danger, Dropkick Murphys, William Shatner, Ray Stevens, The Matinee, Cyndi Lauper, and more.  Experience cartoon voices from The Smurfs, ALF, The Transformers, Pinky and the Brain, G.I.Joe, and Pac-Man.  Finally, plug into the Christmas spirit with Star Wars and video game music.  It’s the sixth edition of UnScrooged — share and enjoy!

Merry Christmas, EarBuds!
