Episode 58 of the ReadJunk Podcast is all about movies or scenes that have scared us as kids…or in my case, still scare me. I’m joined by Ryan Miller (DJ Ryan Midnight, 100% Ska Podcast), and journalist Eric Althoff (Washington Post, LA Times, ReadJunk)and ReadJunk metalhead Chris Taylor. We talk about IT, Nightmare on Elm Street, The Witches, Fire in the Sky, Return to Oz, Willy Wonka, Ernest Scared Stupid, The Blob, and even G.I. Joe. It was a fun chat discussing scary, freaky scenes and movies!

The featured-length documentary Rudeboy: The Story of Trojan Records will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray on November 27th. Nicolas Jack Davies (The Road To Red Rocks, PAYDAY) directed the doc. I have not seen the movie yet since the screenings were selective in theaters and festivals 2 years ago in 2018. Either way, happy that it’s coming out for all to see! The movie talks about ska & reggae music through Trojan Records and I’m all for music docs, especially ones about the early days of ska, rocksteady & reggae. Pre-order here.
