THEY DON'T MAKE 'EM LIKE THEY USED TO
Welcome to They Don't Make 'em Like they Used To. A nostalgic radio show that looks back at pre 1980 (the year I was born) movies and fawns over how lovely they were.
Currently this page is just the collection of all the shows that I and a few friends primarily Shaun and Joe with added Sharon do for Sunshine Radio at St. Mary's Hospital on the Isle of Wight.
Regular features include
BONA FIDE CLASSIC
We pick an undisputed giant of Cinema and discuss it
It's wonderful, it's amazing, but I'm the only one who's seen it. This is that neglected film's chance to shine.
MY FIRST TIME
We ask patients in the Hospital to recount the first film they ever saw in the cinema. With an average patient age of 55, we've gotten some amazing stories of what the cinema experience used to be like.
MY FAVOURITE MOVIE
Patients tell us of their greatest movie of all time, we talk about how great it is.
EXCEPTION TO THE RULE
Some times, they do make them like they used to. We pick a post 1980 movie that holds its head high in any era.
ISLE OF MOVIES
We started off talking about movies that had been filmed (in part) on the Isle of Wight. we have now somewhat tenuously expanded it to movies set on Islands or with some sort of link to islands.
