Episode 14: Highlander

We welcome Doug McCoy to the podcast. Doug is a podcasting veteran, hosting shows such as 80s Anthologies, In the Theater, Crazy Creepy Cool Movies, The Pastor and the Pappy, and Never Seen It. In the spirit of Never Seen It, we decided to review a film that at least one of us had not seen – Highlander. In addition to our review of this classic movie, Robert has a concert review of Asia and Journey, a new Play This, Not That, and an all new Remember That Song and 80s Trivia.

Remember That Song

Last Song: “Naughty, Naughty” by John Parr

Great job, Scot Compton!

I put my hand on your stocking, I was movin’ nice and slow
Let my fingers do the walking, and there ain’t far to go

New Song: The wild dogs cry out in the night/As they grow restless, longing for some solitary company
