SPOOKY! CREEPY! SCARY! OOKIE!?!

 A LOOK BACK AT HALLOWEEN 2020!!!


Hello beasties!

This time we're going to be looking into some of our most recent episodes of The Shy Life Podcast...

What have we been up to? How was did our Halloween involve?! Well, sadly - very little - I didn't even get to see many "in-real-life" decorations this year; even though I was travelling into work three days a week. Still... I did get to do quite a bumper length special episode to celebrate this special time of year!

First up then - why wait - it's time for our extra special Halloween episode for 2020!! 

THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - 387:

EVERY DAY IS HALLOWEEN FOR YETI!
(2020 SPOOKY-CREEPY SPECIAL!)

Here we are for episode 387! This time it's Halloween again! This year we are joined by all manner of special guests - Toppie Smellie calls in from the States with a Vampire Cow report whilst Andrew and Lisa join us for a seance. Meanwhile, Big Fatty, Nick Goodman, Adam from Foul Monkeys, Elaine, Jay The Hauntcub, Martin Holmes, Cuthbert and the regulars have a few spooky comments for us along the way! All this and there is a Sutton Park clip recorded from a creepy wood during a rainstorm in the Summer of 1993! Our next episode, #388 sees Paul and Martin H having a natter about the big pop hits of 1964 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. The music is by Shy Yeti and Luca. Our sound effects are by Shy Yeti and Soundbible. All content of this episode is Copyright Paul Chandler, 2020. Episode 387 was recorded between the 23rd August and 31st October 2020.

Episode Ad: "This time on the show we're celebrating the Halloween weekend with lots of spookiness - not to mention quite a lot of silliness and special guests too! What is Cuthbert up to? Has Toppie Smellie met a Vampire Cow? What are some of Big Fatty's most treasured Halloween memories? What occurred when Foul Monkeys Adam chatted with his spooky neighbours? Is it possible to conduct a seance over Skype? What magical potion has Cromitty sent to Jay The Hauntcub - and why? What happens when a much younger Paul gets attacked by an invisible horror in a rainy wood? What are some of Nick's favourite scary movies? Is Martin Holmes being pestered by a poltergeist? Can a ghost set a video recorder? Can you shave a werewolf!? All this and so much more in our very special 2020 Halloween episode! This edition can be downloaded from Apple Podcasts, Acast, Podbean, Soundcloud, Overcast, PlayerFM, Prime, Spotify and from many other podcasting locations."

That's all for now...

Take care - more soon,

Yeti hugs,

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 shovelling every last thing into a bin bag...

IS OCTOBER OVER ALREADY!?!

 

HALLOWEEN IN THE HEADLIGHTS...


Hello beasties!

This time on the blog we speed on through 2020 and shoot right through October - with Halloween right there in the headlights... We've been working on our Halloween episode for a while now - but unusually for us - it's not quite ready. No matter though as we're planning a special Halloween post to be released at the end of the month. It should probably be said that along with our official Halloween episode - there are also one or two other episodes that could be said to fit in with the spooky season ahead which will be released between now and the end of the year.

As for recording in general - sadly I had to postpone a much hoped for meetup with Nick G in late September due to a mix of work, Deeley-related and general pandemic reasons. Nick and I haven't had a meet-up since early March, although we've recorded a lot on Skype and instead of meeting in September we did this again. We were, however, able to reschedule our plans and Nick popped down to see me for the day rather than me visiting him. Needless to say there are plenty of Nick episodes in the can now and I'll be releasing a couple a month - they're all on a number of different subjects, so I'm trying to spread them out so you get the different themes and not two pop music episodes back-to-back. 

I've also been recording with Andrew and Lisa from Round The Archives - you've heard them on recent LIVE episodes - but there have also been recordings made for various episodes between now and episode 400. Coming up there are also two more episodes with A-Z/RTA Martin focusing on the big pop hits of 1964 and 1965. Although Toppie and I haven't gotten to record as much recently, I do still have one big episode with him to come in the next month or so - but when it gets released depends on what occurs on The Smellcast... You'll see what I mean once it's released... Anyway...

First up with our podcasts releases - one of our last episodes from September 2020... 

THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - 378:
A FAIR FEW FIRSTS AND ONE OR TWO LASTS!

Here we are for episode 378! This time Paul and Nick team up for a chat about some personal firsts - not to mention one or two lasts... or last, to date! We also discuss the very last episodes of the original Sutton Park run from 2000 - or was it 2001!?! Our next edition, #379 sees us sharing some memories from the early 2010s back when Mr Yeti was touring Europe sharing his rather daft verse... (Maybe take that with a pinch of salt!!) 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. The music is by Shy Yeti and Luca. All content of this episode is Copyright Paul Chandler, 2020. Episode 378 was recorded on the 25th July 2020, with various clips from Sutton Park from December 2000 and various dates across 2001!

Thank you to DM and CW for their help with making the original videos from which the audio has been taken for use in this particular edition of The Shy Life Podcast. Our next episode, #380 sees us uncovering a couple of "lost" Shy Life Podcasts from 2018 which were never completed at the time! Do join us, won't you?!
