Blast From The Past 22 – Erk’s High School Reunion Special

Welcome to episode 22 of Blast From the Past podcast. This is another special episode released out of order on a special subject. On this episode, Erk and Judy (Erk’s mum, for those who don’t know) talk about Erk’s recent School Reunion. This is similar to but not exactly the format of regular Blast episodes that are released on Saturdays in Australia where we compare our eras to the present day.

There are a few stories comparing Erk’s Year 10 Formal (Junior High Prom, Americans) and the Year 12 Formal (Senior Prom, Americans) to the other night and what changes Erk found between those school times and now.

But keeping within the theme of Blast, we talk also a bit about what an RSL Club is, Judy wonders about if people still have Debutante Balls like they did in her day. Also, we talk about how this one was organised via Facebook – of course, Judy didn’t have Facebook! We think out loud about future reunions, and a lot more. Judy asks Erk about people that he went to school with that she knew and Erk says what a good time he had.

Were there surprises? For sure!

Where there fights? The only fight Erk remembers was the fight to get a cab home! Oh, and the fight to get last drinks.

Did people who missed out miss a great night? Yes, they did.

Is Erk glad that he went? Hell Yeah!

Blast From The Past 6 – Television

Welcome to episode 6 of Blast From The Past Podcast. In episode 5 we looked at radio so in episode 6 we look at television. We discuss the introduction of television in Australia, growing up without having a TV at home, favourite TV shows, TV today and more.

Here’s a challenge for our non Australian listeners – what Australian shows do you get on American TV?
