Back This Saturday By Unpopular Demand - The KFJC Psychotronix Film Festival!
The KFJC Psychotronix Film Festival returns to the hallowed halls of Foothill College (Room 5015) yet again to celebrate its 24th anniversary!
It's an all-new extravaganza of semi-cinematic merriment, personally endorsed by The Management!
Since the "Joan Crawford With The Family At Christmastime" radio show is our idea of Yuletide festiveness, we're back with another holiday themed show!
That means a veritable winter wonderland of questionable entertainment and pop culture mayhem!
For almost all of the 24 year run, the festival has transpired on either the first or second Saturday in December, so the program will include some very cool Christmas cartoons. Here's a fantastic one shown at a previous Foothill College extravaganza.
We promise to show only the most unintentionally hilarious 1950's "educational" films.
Scopitones will be on hand.
As will Soundies. . .
And coming attractions trailers from the worst movies. . .
We'll raise that with the oddest short subjects.
And, of course, clips from TV programs that should never have aired.
The Psychotronix Film Festival is still chugging inexorably down the tracks like the lil' locomotive that could in the "Frank Tash" Looney Tune cartoon Porky's Railroad!
Your "host with the most" for the evening's festivities: movie and television music expert Robert Emmett of KFJC-FM's Norman Bates Memorial Soundtrack Show.
This blogmeister shall shamelessly plug Saturday's show on the radio with Robert, along with collaborators, collectors, archivists and fellow intrepid DIY curators Sci Fi Bob Ekman and Scott Moon, tomorrow evening on Thoughtline from 6PM-7PM Pacific Standard Time.
This program will also be available for download on the KFJC Broadcast Archives for two weeks.
