Retroist Podcast – Episode 160 – The Blues Brothers


On this week’s show we talk about the timeless musical comedy classic, The Blues Brothers. I start by talking about my first exposure to The Blues Brothers and how it lead me down a path of denial and misinformation that I sort of miss nowadays. Then I talk about the creators of The Blues Brothers, the video games, the people in front of and behind the camera, the music, plot and much much more. I am joined again by Vic Sage who does another great “Why Should I know this Person”. This week, Vic tells you why you should know the very talented, Charles Napier. The Zerbinator also returns this week to tell us all about the music in The Blues Brothers, in his segment, “Sounds Retro”.

Music on the show was provided by Peachy (the Matt “Guitar” Murphy of Wales), if you have musical needs, why not contact Peachy at And “like” him on his Facebook Page.

    This makes me want to watch the movie, which I own on DVD. I haven’t watched it in a while. I think I will watch it this weekend.

    Just a quick feedback. I am unable to download the podcast from the mirror site on my android phone. I have to now download it on my laptop and then move it to my phone. In the past, I could right click the download button on my phone and then save it. Love the show and will continue to listen even with these extra steps, just wanted to give you a heads up.

  3. Rick says:

    Actually it started with the cosmos podcast. I thought the download button not being there was because the podcast wasn’t planned and it would come back with the next one. It did not and when I try to download the podcast from the mirror site on my phone, it behaves as though it is downloading but it just hangs.
