Forgotten Flix Gets Roasted

Hey everyone, Joel here…

So about a month or so back, I made a little guest appearance on the 6 Towns Radio show Sunday Roasting. This is a cool show out of Trent-On-Stoke in England. It’s hosted by Terry Bossons and Timothy Haddock, two funny dudes who know their movies. For this particular episode they thought it’d be a good idea to have yours truly on the show to talk “forgotten” flicks.

Well, talk I did. I’m pretty sure that if a cop had set up a speed trap in the phone line, my mouth would have got a ticket. I know I normally talk fast, but damn if I didn’t break all manner of verbal-speed records on that call. So, here’s my requisite excuse: I was nervous. And I talk fast when I’m nerv… ah, screw it! Whom I kidding? I talk fast because that little hamster turning the wheel inside my chrome dome has the energy output of a meth addict and that wheel he’s turning is greased up with the left over grease from a month’s worth of hamburger grillin’.

But I digress, so due to the amazing generosity of Terry and Timothy, I now present to you my discussion on Sunday Roasting about some of our favorite forgotten flix:

Forgotten Flix Presents… An Interview with Dick Miller!

Legendary actor Dick Miller

Well, I know I said I wouldn’t be posting again until Friday. Okay. So, I lied. But the reason for breaking my vow to only post Mondays and Fridays until the official launch of Forgotten Flix is valid. You see, I have obtained a recently recorded interview with the one and only Dick Miller!

This interview is courtesy of my friends Terry Bossons and Timothy Haydock who do a fantastic radio show out of the UK called Sunday Roasting. You can find it over at 6 Towns radio. Their show airs on Sundays 2 – 4 PM (GMT). That means all us Yanks are listening from 9 – 11 AM (EST). The show re-airs on Thursdays from 7 – 9 PM (GMT), or 2 – 4 PM on the eastern coast of the old U.S. So, please check them out. If this interview with the cinematic legend Dick Miller doesn’t convince you of their awesomeness, well… (*insert sound of blowing raspberries here).

And if you don’t know who Dick Miller is (*I said, shaking my head as a single tear ran down my cheek*), please click his name and check out the man’s credits in IMDB. With a career that spans from 1955 in Apache Woman to today where he can be seen in Joe Dante’s latest The Hole, Dick Miller is a genre stalwart deserving of our respect and admiration.

His is a career that should always be remembered!

Here’s the interview:
