Episode 24 – The Star Wars Holiday Special (1978)

This week join Andrew and Jonathan with special return guest Frank Bridges (The New Brunswick Music Scene Archive) as they struggle to get through the atrocity that is 1978’s The Star Wars Holiday Special. You’ve heard about, you’ve read about it, you might have even blinded yourself attempting to watch such garbage – but now listen to Inside the Box dissect the special and place it in context with the decline in popularity of TV variety specials at the end of the 1970s.

Then be sure to stop back two weeks from now on Thursday December 31st, 2015 to listen to a very special New Year’s Eve full length episode. You can leave a comment on this page and can always reach us via email at: feedback@tvhistorypod.com

Episode 23 – TV Theme Songs

This week join Steve and Jonathan as they discuss one of the most successful television theme song writing partnerships in TV history: Post/Carpenter! We discuss the history of TV theme songs, why they’ve fallen out of fashion, and provide three examples to illustrate the successful Post/Carpenter formula. This week Steve and Jonathan are “Drivin’ like the demon that drives your beat”. 🙂
