Tune up and tune in for some cartoon tunes as animated bands set the stage for music and memories on this mid-February episode of TechnoRetro Dads.

We Love Our Cereal…
…and Buffalo does, too. Check out The Cereal Spot where the bowls are chilled all winter! Go to Kansas City and get you a super bowl of Mahomes Magic Crunch! In Japan, you can even get a sweet box of Hershey’s Matcha Chocolate cereal.
Listen to the bands as they play cartoon tunes on Saturday mornings from the 1960s to the early 1990s. Some of these may be more obscure than others, but with a little help from EarBuds, shazbazzar and JediShua have pieced together a nice set list of songs from animated television.
Let’s All Go to the Movies: Witness
When an eight year-old Amish boy witnesses a murder as he travels to Philadelphia, John Book has to get involved for everyone’s safety as the case is investigated. Remember Witness from 1985 starring Harrison Ford, Lukas Haas, and Kelly McGillis, and many more famous faces.
The Road to the Empire Strikes Back
From soundtracks to disco covers, the music of a galaxy far, far away lived on in the late ‘70s and 1980 as we all eagerly awaited the sequel to Star Wars. Get out the turntable and spin some vinyl with JediShua and shazbazzar as we listen to everything from orchestral music, disco, and even read-along books on the Road to the Empire Strikes Back.
