Customer Reviews

Educating me in things I had no interest in .

This really surprised me , I’ve known of but never listened to Noel’s previous work, but after stumbling across this I thought ‘let’s support a fellow lover of cinema ‘ ,

He is well spoken , interesting , but more importantly has a manner that keeps the listener glued to the subject matter even though they had no previous interest .

This has earn’t its subscription and I will be downloading back episodes .

A British Masterpiece

If you grew up in 1980s Britain and love all things pop culture (especially the ‘darker’ side of it) this show is for you. Wonderfully narrated and with excellent production value (there are lots of snippets of theme songs or clips from movies etc) the host is very knowledgeable with a voice you can relate to. An excellent listen
