Tonight, Johnny Zombie celebrates his birthday (June 6th) with an episode about The 80's. While this is by no means an exhaustive look at the decade of youth and excess, it is a brief starting point for future episodes. Johnny Zombie counts down some of his favorite TV shows, movies, and toys from the era of his childhood. Subjects are broad in range, and include: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Nintendo, You Can't Do that on Television, and Danger Mouse!
As always, you can listen to the excess hair metal here. Or, you can download it from Archive.org
I also mourn the loss of James Arness. Best know for his roles as Marshal Dillon on Gunsmoke, and as the titular character of Howard Hawkes' The Thing From Another World.
