Episode 4 - Listener Contributions

Hi all First up we just want to take this opportunity to thank everybody who has gotten behind us and our show and peppered us with praise and kind words, trust us it means a lot!

Now, we wanna hear from YOU! We will be recording episode 4 (our Guilty Pleasures show) in a week, and we want to hear from you. What are your favorite guilty pleasures? What title makes you blush when you say it, or makes you drop your head in shame when quizzed over why it is sitting on your DVD shelf?

Well we are here to help, come alleviate some of that guilt with us. It's easy, send us an mp3 of your 10 guilty pleasures, or if you don't have the facilities for recording - no problem - shoot us an email at midnightmoviecowboys@gmail.com with your list, or alternatively, you can post them up on our Facebook page (which you'll find on the left hand side of this post, but hey you can't post on our wall until you join by hitting the 'Like' button - so click that bad boy if you haven't already).

Give us your 10, in either a countdown 10-1 mode, or in no particular order

All contributions will be played / read out on the show.

Thanks,

Stu

Episode 3 Listener’s Guide

Howdy everyone, Hunter here!

Episode 3 of the Midnight Movie Cowboys is a real doozy, we discuss a great deal of shorts by both Disney and Warner Bros., and since most of them are available on YouTube, we saw it fit to create a listener's guide to keep you up to speed on the discussion.  The Disney shorts are in no particular order, however The Warner Bros. short films are in the order in which we discuss them on the show.  Please note that the content of these shorts contains attitudes that are considered hurtful or otherwise naive by today's standards, so keep that in mind going in.  Enjoy!
