Forgotten TV podcast trailer

June 19, 2018

Join me on Forgotten TV where I explore TV memories of the 70s and 80s, from the fondly remembered to the obscure, short-lived TV shows, pilots, and made for TV movies. 

Your ForgottenTV host was raised on UHF reruns of Star Trek and The Twilight Zone on a black and white 19 inch Admiral TV, long before the average household had home video and back when you had to catch shows when they were on. An utter TV and media nerd, I recorded TV theme songs on a Panasonic cassette recorder, had the ‘Television 1970-1980’ book, wrote my own episode guides to Battlestar Galactica, Greatest American Hero and Wonder Woman, as well as my own episode of The Twilight Zone and my first aired radio spot all in middle school.
