The following blatantly ripped from the ABU! Blog:
As there have been *so many requests for me to post up the latest ABU Podcast (September) I thought that I had better do something about it.
There were a couple of new pieces in the last month’s show, namely the What’s The Connection? Section and the yesteryear hip hop chart. Thanks to Simmo as I borrowed one of his Groove Hip Hop Charts scans to compile the content from September 1986.
No theme this month as I have been doing previously. However I’m hoping to do a bit of a Halloween Special in a few weeks being that the show falls on the night before the spookiest night of the year.
I’m already planning what I will be watching this year. I will make sure that whatever I see will be certified pant-wetting material as I seem to remember being disappointed last year with my ill-fated choices.
Maybe I’m entering ‘saddo’ territory here but there is an annual event that takes place each Halloween all to do with the once-shown, never-repeated, BBC scare-fest that is and was Ghostwatch, that I am hoping to be a part of.
In a nutshell, you watch the tv drama on your chosen media player then ‘tweet’ about it as if it is being shown live – as it originally was. It all has to be perfectly synced and you must press play at exactly 9.25pm to get the full benefit.
I think I must’ve been out when it was first shown on tv back in 1992 because I don’t remember watching it at the time. It’s slightly dated now, all the presenters look very young (Craig Charles in particular), the ‘proper’ actors are actually worse than the non-actors but there is a real creepiness about it. It was mistaken for a real-life live documentary when in fact it was nothing more than a drama. There are numerous sightings of the freaky ‘Mr Pipes‘ to look out for and upon repeated viewings (or Youtube) you can find them – some of them are quite shocking as you realise you didn’t see him before when it seems quite obvious!
Anyway see this link for full details if this sort of thing sets your pulse racing.
Coming the following month in November is the ABU Album Volume 2 launch show. It’s been a while coming but I can assure you that it will be worth the wait.
