Here we are for episode 452! In a change to our scheduled episode this time Mister Yeti is taking an episode off and so presents four different articles that he and Toppie recorded together over a year ago for Round The Archives. If you've not heard these before then our TV-loving heroes discuss a number vintage US TV shows - from The Twilight Zone to Night Gallery, not to mention a number of Irwin Allen shows to curios such as The Invaders and The Wild Wild West that may not be so well remembered in the UK. If you enjoy all this TV chatter then we hope that you'll decide to jump aboard the Round The Archives podcast as a regular listener... there is so much more to explore with (very nearly) 60 episodes and several specials out there to download. Our next episode, #453 will be coming soon - it could be one of a number of different episodes - so whatever we release will be a surprise dear listeners! 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, 2019. The articles that appear on Episode 452 were recorded early in 2020 and featured on episodes 44, 45, 48 and 50B of Round The Archives; Paul's links were recorded on 21st July 2021.

Next time we'll be discussing what we've gotten up to on the show during August 2021...

P.S. Apologies for the rather old photos used in this post - I'm having trouble getting my newer photos onto my laptop since I got my new PC earlier this year. Most of the photos in this post are from my trip to Vienna back in 2018; although the black cat is my feline friend, Mylo the owner of my friend, Paul J.
