The Retrospace Podcast Archives

There aren't any new episodes here, but it made me sad that all those old podcasts have died a horrible death (thanks, Rapidshare).  Well, a few of you have requested that I resuscitate these dead links,so I've uploaded a bunch of them again.

If you're not familiar with these old podcasts, take note that these are just music and random retro-commercials, trailers, etc.with no talking (as in the Horshack Redemption)  - sort of a heavenly hash of retro-audio off the beaten path.

Who knows - maybe I'll do some more of these.  In the meantime, enjoy some recently resurrected podcasts from yesteryear...

  1. thanks for re uploading these gems

  2. Thanks for re-upping!!

  3. Wonderful!! Thanks a HUGE lot... Those are just fantastic!

  4. These have inspired me to try my hand at a podcast mix.

    1. Let me know when you've got one up - drop a link in the comment section here.

  5. AnonymousMay 13, 2015

    Excellent stuff here! Thanks for providing these. I'd like to point out that the links for "Episode 21" and "Episode 22" both link to the .mp3 for "Episode 21", which is a real shame because I'm a big fan of the "Night Gallery" theme. Any chance you can correct that?

    1. It should be fixed now. Thanks for pointing that out.
