Random Interview #7 – @IUsedToLoveThat

Interview number 7 is with Brian, from www.IUsedToLoveThat.com. He runs a site that reviews old toys, that I could spend hours on end looking at. He-Man toys, Transformers, a selection of interviews and more. Over to you, Brian! Did you ever have a birthday party, and which was your favourite one? Only one that I […]

Random Interview #6 – Alex Walsh

Interview number 5 is with Alex Walsh, or @DaddaCool on Twitter. From the very first answer, I loved this interview! Many kids favourite holiday destinations may have been Florida, or Spain, or Australia… I just wasn’t expecting….. well, have a read! Where was your favourite holiday destination? Barnstaple. We used to down that that neck […]

Random Interview #5 – Simon Hewitt

Next in the series of Random 80s Interviews, we have a quick chat with Simon Hewitt. Simon was the event manager of Silicon Dreams, which featured a vintage computer festival. What were the best freebies in breakfast cereal? I vaguely remember cartoon stickers, but they never lasted longer than a day! Were you ever so […]

Random Interview #3 – @RetroWench

Interview number 2 in the series of “Random Interviews” is Phil Scowcroft. Phil is Head of Music at Bolton FM, a station that, over the last two years, has invited me in a few times to take part in Kev Gurneys Club Tropicana 80s show. I say “invited me in”, but I think they more […]

Random Interview #1 – Laura D

First up in the “Random Questions About Your 80s” interviews is Laura D McBryde. I originally got the idea of random-question interviewing from her, and so as a thanks it seemed fitting that she was the first person to be featured. To read more about the “Random Interviews”, see this page. Where was your favourite […]

Random Questions About Your 80s

A few months ago, I took part in an interview project that I found out about via Twitter. I was asked a few random questions via email by @LauraDMcBryde, I emailed my answers back the the results appeared on her website along with many other peoples. Recently I returned to the site and re-read my […]

Betamax VCR

The 80s saw a very vicious war, where there could be only one winner. It was the war between VHS and Betamax. Some people wondered who would win, but to me I knew who the winner would be. This was due to the fact that my father had a habit of always backing the horse […]

Peter and Jane books

You wouldn’t find books like these around today. I mean, look at it. There’s two half naked kids on the front cover asking you to play with them. Certainly an innocent enough book in those days, but today is likely to get you banged up on paedophile charges just for owning one. The Peter and […]
