The Munsters Today / Hammer House Of Horror


All good things must come to an end, as The Peggy Mount Calamity Hour’s terrifying triptych of pernicious programming reaches its unholy zenith. The podcast shines a light upon that which should never have been unearthed, as The Munsters Today presents a far more horrifying spectacle than any of the writers or producers could have foreseen. Then back to more comforting times in Hammer House Of Horror’s ‘Children Of The Full Moon, when a broken down car and the assistance of the kindly owner of a remote mansion can only lead to hirsute hysterics.

How did NBC Universal manage to produce over seventy episodes of a show based on The Munsters whilst ensuring that not a single cast or crew-member had ever seen an episode of The Munsters? Did the Hammer production budget not stretch so seatbelts? And was the UK’s wine-situation so bad in 1980 that nobody knew how to even pronounce pinot noir? Let’s crack open a baleful brew and find out…



...but that is not dead which can eternal lie,
And with stranger aeons, we’ll be back before Christmas, bye!

Emu's All-Live Pink Windmill Show / Sapphire & Steel


The second tarry of the week approaching TotenSonntag finds our dour duo, Velvet and Blackout, immersed in a world of windmills, witches and whimsy, as their voyage whisks them to the dark delights offered by Emu’s All Live Pink Windmill Show; a showcase of the soured cream of stage school talent amongst other anti-climactic features. The cheery, naive tone of the antipodean bird’s comfort zone is suddenly torn asunder however, as supernatural elements conspire to cloak the mood with temporal confusion and complication, as a knock at the door reveals the arrival of intergalactic agents Sapphire and Steel in their inaugural unnerving outing.

Will Purdey be perturbed at the fact that Illya Kuryakin has emulated her trademark haircut? Who is Will Purdey? How many of the Pink Windmill Kids wish that television, as a form of media consumption, was no longer a thing? How many of the rest of us are sorry that it ever was? More importantly, WHAT THE HELL IS PJ HAMMOND ON ABOUT? Listen on, and maybe you can assist…

Drak Pack / 3-2-1


We reconvene with our couple of contumelious and cogent cajolers at the embarkation of a week of Samhain celebrations, to dust the sprawling cobwebs from a solid-oak planchette and summon ghostly intimations from televisual spectres long since departed. The first calling heralds the manifestation of a triumvirate of American film studio derivatives in the form of 1980’s Drak Pack; the animated adventures following the descendants of Hollywood’s horror-stars of a Silver cinematic Age. Their potentially-monochromatic appearance drives our two Hallowe’en hoodlums onward down a clue-ridden pathway to a paucity of prizes, courtesy of Yorkshire Television’s 3-2-1, in a 1982 episode entitled Spine-chillers.

Is it possible for a doorway to have deep-rooted psychological connotations? Just how proud can one man be, of the position he fills in a nine-to-five job? Does Henry McGee actually have teeth? Creep into the crypt and you may just find out…

Bod / The Good Old Days


In this euphonious and mellifluous episode, Doctor Velvet and Blackout are joined once again by the estimable Oswald Bognops to partake of repartee a la television vintage. Rural yet congenial hospitality is the order of the day as our ‘wholly' trinity of annotators sample the delights of country living, courtesy of Bod and his mates, who’ve decided to open a rooming house of sorts ‘pon arable farmland. To follow, entertainment is prolific at the local music hall where The Good Old Days ensure a munificent and magnanimous musical meandering through the multitude of moldings made for the variety stage of yesteryear.

Just what is Aunt Flo doing? Are the bucolic yet polemical outdoor activities of Bod’s posse as wanton as semi-inebriated, under-graduate humour would infer? Did Maggie Henderson only work Saturdays? Does Ozzy Bognops drag his pianoforte to every social occasion? Could this be the last show in the current series? And once again…just what is Aunt Flo doing?

The answers are all in this specially-extended bumper issue!




To note...
Today's performance is brought to you by the Eternia National Ballet...



...and by someone our legal team has asked us to say is not in any way Mr. Noel Fielding Snr.
