Thanksgiving is just around the bend and we’re going over the river and through the woods for The Last Pumpkin Pie at Gramma’s where anything can happen. Totally #TechnoRetro!
JediShua and shazbazzar wish you a Happy Thanksgiving while you’re chewing on turkey and Chewie snacks on some porgs.
TechnoRetro Dads: The Last Pumpkin Pie (and a Turkey Shoot to Boot!)
We’re talking turkey this week with stories about seeing family during Thanksgiving, tuning in for some tunes (both new and old), discovering odd clips from 1977, and an early Christmas present for JediShua from an old friend. Don’t miss these 77 minutes!
In the NEWS…
Disney dominates the news with announcements about their online streaming service and some Star Wars comments that have opened the floor for discussion all across the galaxy far, far away.
According to the future as envisioned in 1984, a turkey blight overruns the nation in 1989, turning unsuspecting humans into giant turkeys that team-up for a life of crime and it’s up to you, PLAYER ONE, to put an end to it. Roast those turkeys on Williams Electronics’ Turkey Shoot!
Thanksgiving Specials (1977)
JediShua remembers Barney Miller, What’s Happenin’, and more from Thanksgiving 1977.
