The first ReadJunk Podcast episode of 2019 is with filmmaker Taylor Morden, who is releasing two documentaries, Pick it Up: Ska in the 90s and The Last Blockbuster. Both movies sounds awesome and I can’t wait to see them!
I talk to Taylor over Skype about both documentaries and filming process, licensing songs, is the movie mainly focusing on West Coast bands or East Coast bands as well, reason why some ska bands made it into the mainstream and others didn’t, Taylor briefly talks about touring in Japan, then we talk about Blockbuster, video stores in general and some techniques people used to get VHS/DVDs from the video store. It’s a good talk so have a listen!
Theme song music by Rude Boy George.
I should have another new episode in a week or two. I have a long list of people I want to talk to this year over Skype, in person or on the phone so we’ll see how many I can get to this year. Thanks for listening and be sure to spread the word about the podcast!
