Episode 96: Black Bette

Artwork.jpg

In this week’s episode…

We’re touring the world with the help of a very special guide book!

There’s a whole bunch of thank-yous!

There’s a very TUMS remedy to consider!

And then we’ve got a dive into some unconventional noir…

The first is a Jules Dassin classic set in and around the endlessly winding alleyways of London’s Soho, and the second is a date with Bette Davis in sweaty Singapore for a very moral dilemma…

Plus music from Johnny Mercer, Jo Stafford, Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald!

Episode 25: A Wicked Woman

This week, it's Lugosi vs Connery, as more monks come out of the woodwork, Adam analyses the "high cost of living" and gives you an abundance of happy piano.

Film reviews come courtesy of another Cornell Woolrich-penned nailbiter in the form of 1944's nightmarish 'Phantom Lady', and the downright spellbinding Gene Tierney in the downright shocking 'Leave Her To Heaven' from 1945, which sees her... well... you'll hear all about it in this week's Attaboy Clarence!

This week's slice of radio stars another "bad gal" in the shape of Barbara Stanwyck, and the winer of the Universal Monsters Bluray Boxset is announced. Will it be you? Probably not as I only have one to give, but how's about an iTunes review anyway? You can do so here

Episode 24: I Write With A Goose Quill, Dipped In Venom

This week Adam pays a musical tribute to a very nice email, challenges a listener to go 'Full-Lugosi' and take the "You have failed, Monk!" challenge!

Also, a shameless glimpse at this year's Good Podcasts Awards, which turned up a rather nice surprise.

Furthermore, who knew that Lanolin could be employed so well as a lyric, that Winston Cigarettes could come up with such a happy-clappy jingle, or that Adam could be so taken by verbose bartenders in old movies?

The hero of this week's show is the fabulous Mr Clifton Webb, Hollywood's go-to withering wit. Hear all about his two biggest roles, in that of Otto Preminger's 1944 noir-mystery classic 'Laura', and in the 1948 comedy sensation 'Sitting Pretty'.

This week's radio offering is from the Lux Radio Theatre, and keep listening to hear how you can win this week's prize, a Bluray boxset filled with Universal Monsters...
