SHY YETI... SPRINGING OUT ALL OVER!!

 
APPRAISING APRIL...


Hello beasties!

This time on the blog we're looking back at the episodes that we released during April 2021!

First up, Paul and Nick head back to their childhood's to discuss a magazine that they both enjoyed! 

THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - 423:

LOOKING IN ON "LOOK-IN" WITH PAUL AND NICK!

Here we are for episode 423! This time on the show we head back to 2020 to share with a show that we saved from one of our mega recording sessions during the summer. Nick is back and we're discussing a magazine that was part of many of our youths here in the UK... it was called Look-In and it was about TV, music and all sorts of goings on! Listen as we share our memories of it during the 70s and early 80s. Our next edition will be episode  #424... and we're still not completely sure what we're hoping to release next! You'll just have to wait and see! Until next time then!! Please email me at shyyeti@yahoo.co.uk if you have any comments - you can even send me a sound-file and I'll include it on the show. The music is by Shy Yeti and Luca. All content of this episode - except for the advert clips - are Copyright Paul Chandler, 2021. Episode 423 was recorded on the 8th of August 2020.

Our next episode this blog-post was what was originally our March Chatterbox episode, which ended up getting promoted to the position of Easter Special because it took a while to edit...

THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - 424:

SHY YETI'S CHATTERBOX - SPRING-ISH SPECIAL!

Here we are for episode 424! Shy Yeti's Chatterbox is back... and yes, it is a little late... It should have been our March edition - but it's been promoted to the position of Spring Special instead... Nobody will mention it though because they didn't know when it was recorded and Easter / Spring is barely even referred to... Shhh... Just enjoy the episode, can't you!? This edition we discuss the TV that was big in 1971, including one of Mr Yeti's favourite actors. There are also a couple of flashbacks to earlier episodes along the way! We also have a great line-up... Andrew and Lisa from Round The Archives, Martin Holmes from Vision On Sound, Toppie Smellie from The Smellcast - not to mention our own show regulars Yeti Uncle John and Cromitty! Our extra material features chat between Wifey Jo and Calum, plus a brief out-take from our recent show number 419, also starring Mister Smellie; not to mention a quick dip into the archives. Our next episode, #425 sees us catching up with Yeti Uncle John's latest hobby... Oh dear... Here we go again!! Do join us, won't you?! Please email me at shyyeti@yahoo.co.uk if you have any comments - you can even send me a sound-file and I'll include it on the show. The music is by Shy Yeti and Luca. All content of this episode is Copyright Paul Chandler, 2021. Episode 424 was recorded on the 20th March 2021, with extra material recorded earlier this year.

Next up - Yeti Uncle John is back with a new hobby and further yeti mischief!

THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - 425:

YETI UNCLE JOHN - MAGPIE-FANCIER!!

Here we are for episode 425! This time we join Paul and the gang as they face-up to Yeti Uncle John's latest craze... Magpie-fancying! It's like pigeon-fancying only far more dangerous - not to mention much flappier and squarkier! It has to be said that there is definitely some doubt, based on previous experience, that this new venture is going to end very badly... but we'll just have to listen and see, I guess! This episode we also have some Sutton Park clips from June 1996 (#1422-1424) which feature Trowby getting extremely cross with Paul... It does seem that Paul probably deserves it, though, to be fair! Our next episode, #426 sees us catching up with Martin Holmes again to discuss the big hits of 1967 on both sides of the pond! Do join us, won't you?! Please email me at shyyeti@yahoo.co.uk if you have any comments - you can even send me a sound-file and I'll include it on the show. The music is by Shy Yeti and Luca.

437. Haunt-club And The Eight-legged Gossip! 

During A Visit Jay and Ikk are able to communicate with Jay's eight-legged family member... but that is just the beginning of the surprise! (She is also good at quizzes!!)

(**) 438. Nick And Paul's TV Chat! (A Flashback To September 2020!) 

This time we're looking back a few months to September 2020 - to see how then compares with now. Nick and Paul chat about some recently watched TV and also about their friends - with a few clips from Sutton Park to stir it all around!

Paul and Nick discuss some of the big events that have occurred during their lifetime and if they remember them!

454. The New Caretaker / "Where's Me Booook!?"

With Toby busy with work and Paul spending all hours editing podcasts, things have gotten a little untidy during lock-down and so Bettina gives Paul the details of a caretaker who used to work on her Estate... It seems like a good idea until it becomes evident that this gentleman swings from being extremely lazy to shoveling every last thing into a bin bag... What ever will happen when he reaches the basement and finds all the tat in Cromitty's laboratory; what will happen to all those priceless Sutton Park tapes? For that matter will Cuthbert make it through the night!?!

455.The Revenge Of Robot Big Fatty! 

The inner personality of Robot Big Fatty returns to cause us much concern! What has he been up to? Maybe Mr Trowbridge and Lisa can help educate him at Round The Archives University?

Who ARE they and who EVER can save the day? We have an extra special guest from overseas but we can't tell you who; I'm sorry you'll just have to listen! One thing that we can tell you is to expect an appearance from Isaac and Declan - our Shame Inspectors from That's A Shame podcast. This can only mean one thing... Yeti Uncle John is going to be in BIG TROUBLE!!
