This week it's almost all "telly talk", and it's almost all retro! Of course, the CW shows have to have their moment in the spotlight, but after that we take a time travelling trip back to 1988 to visit an old burnt buddy...the Freddy Kruegz! Back in the year of '88, Lorimar Distribution and New Line Cinema teamed up to give the fans of Freddy their very own horror anthology hosted by the Dream Master himself, and it was a campy fun ride. Puns, and bad acting and cheers and jeers all around, Freddy's Nightmares would grace TV screens for two full seasons (44 episodes). In today's episode of The Bats, Bows n' Books Podcast, Paul gives some insight on the show, and the pilot episode titled "No More Mr. Nice Guy". And to wrap the show up today, a small Tune Time segment highlighting an independent musical act of present day, with a retro touch; VHS Glitch. So get ready to go for a wondrous journey back in time for an 80s kind of Bats, Bows n' Books episode...
Outro Track: "Until the Last Drop of Blood" by VHS Glitch; from the 2015 release "Halloween Strangers". https://vhsglitch.bandcamp.com/
The background music during the Freddy's Nightmares portion of the episode is from the 1990 original NES game "A Nightmare on Elm Street" developed by Rare and distributed by LJN.
