Don’t Lets Chart 213 – A Doll Called Alan

“You can watch Dog Day Afternoon because you rotated your arm…” Happy International Richard Herring Telling People About International Women’s Day! We’re doing our best to celebrate the day despite you know…the obvious. There’s a Cheryl Baker inspired look at the lesser discussed pre-9am Saturday shows including Breakfast Serials, Kissyfur, the wrong early version of ChuckleVision and whatever the frig Ovide was meant to be. Then we visit the video shop for a very original game show not affiliated with the late Bruce Forsyth before we discuss rare dolls seriously and with great insight. And not just a lot of giggling at names like “Original Midge”. To the women! 

And yes, we know its spelled Allan.

Plus: Why is there a zucchini on your doorstep? Who released “The Best of the Beatles“? And when is the optimum day for your cat to murder you?

Dont Lets Chart 211 – Bubblegum Tongue (Direct To Video)

Its Valentine’s week and as per usual Ben and Phil are here to put this d on you. Or is that old Ian Snoop Dogg? Either way, its not a very welcoming start to a show dedicated to all the best romantic things – i.e. murderous computers, Ernest Goes To Camp and the music of Mr Mister…which probably explains why your hosts are both single. That and their faces, personalities and clothing coverage in biscuits obviously. And thats before they’ve heard this new episode which is really very silly indeed. So…um, you seeing anyone then?

Dont Lets Chart 210 – A Song With The Word Smurf In It

2020 already doing your head in? Time for an arbitrary time warp back to 1996 for a listener voted top 20 of things including Kenickie, Mark and Lard on the Graveyard Shift, the mysterious mayfly career of Bear Van Beers, the Spice Girls tell us what they want, a brief trip to the Eighth Doctor, Take That splitting up, Quake and Resident Evil change up the videogames, all the heroin films, the mediocre return of Fist of Fun, football came home…for a bit, Jarvis vs Jacko and much more.

NOTE: Ben and Phil were teenagers in 1996 so expect talk about wanking. Sorry about that.

Dont Lets Chart 209 – Two Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest

What’s the longest gap between official movie sequels? 

Why do all 50s American sitcoms sound filthy? 

And how would anyone ever get the nickname “The Cabbage”?

Its an old school sort of Chart this week as Ben and Phil look at the week in years gone by and find some totally unconnected but suitably ridiculous facts about Bad Boys 3, make room for “Daddy” and run through the best (read: most childish) Royal nicknames of history. Its a very funny episode but if you dont enjoy it, give us a shout and we’ll tape a Baby Yoda to the front improving the content by 200%. You can be sure of it!

Dont Lets Chart 207 – More Boglin Themed Than I Was Anticipating

Merry Christmas from me and Phil! Here’s a special show for everyone spending Christmas alone (or just wants something to do whilst hiding!) In an incessantly upbeat slightly longer episode – well, it IS Christmas – we look at the best characters in A Christmas Carol, talk top 5 presents, take listener questions about seasonal stuff, rank the chocolates that matter and play a very naughty festive lyric quiz. With thanks to Colin’s Godson, The Plimptons, Wolf 359 and all of you for a year of ridiculous fun in very strange times.

And if you’re still not satisfied, check out our Scrooge-change-like sharing of a Patreon only episode in which we fix the Christmas charts of the 1980s – whether they want it or not.

Dont Lets Chart 206 – Schnorbitz Was Not In Star Wars

Its…sort of…almost…Christmas! Time for a bubble of nonsense away from the reality of the previous week as Ben and Phil jump back to the eighties for a listener-suggested game of Christmas TV Schedule Wars. Its almost like one of them has a book out about it. The years 1981, 1985 and 1989 come under scrutiny for “Ratty Old Puppet Fun”, “Lethal Amounts of Cliff Richard”, “Christmas Dinner Sitcom Disasters”, “Shit Disney” and lots of “Things They’d Never Show Now” among other things selected by you lot. 

Direct Download Link Here. 

Plus Smash Hits vs. the Queen’s Speech, Phil goes up against Tiffany (careful now) and the official worst things of 1989. Its promises to be…….on.

Your favourite facts ‘n’ fannying about podcast returns with an all star tribute to six decades of Phil Catterall (aged 39). There are messages from his friends – also Ben is there. Plus Phil’s top 20 things of all time ever (that arent giant fighting robots) including some nifty 90s shootouts, which comedy act he went to see instead of revising for his GCSEs, best Bonds, the best foot that can be barely considered a food, Greendale pride, perhaps the most stupid quiz yet and lots more.
