From the Vault: The Graham Flanagan Show (March 24, 2004)
During a recent cleaning session, a tape was unearthed from the show that in many ways is the mother of the FilmNerds podcast, a college radio program called The Graham Flanagan Show which aired on the University of Alabama student radio station New Rock 90.7. Back then, host Graham Flanagan would spin his favorite tunes and chat about film with various guests, including Matt Scalici and Graham’s younger brother Ben. In this particular episode recorded on March 24, 2004, the guys discuss Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind which had just been released. They also touch on some of the major movie news and talking points of the day including:
- How great an idea it would be for Mel Gibson to make a movie about the story of Hanukkah.
- How it was basically an inevitability that Troy would be the year’s biggest film and an Oscar contender.
- And how Christian Bale would be a great pick to be the next James Bond.
Call it a prequel. Call it FilmNerds: Episode I. Call it FilmNerds Babies. Either way, enjoy this clip of the guys doing their thing and chatting about movies before any of them had worked an honest day in their life.
NOTE: The audio ends abruptly due to the fact that the cassette tape it was being recorded onto (yes, a cassette tape) ran out.
