There are few things in this world -- and certainly very few things almost four decades old -- that get us pumped up like the theme music from the movie The Warriors. In Episode 6 of The Throwback Show (embedded below), we hit this strange, occasionally perplexing but mostly wonderful movie with an old wooden baseball bat. Also during our trip back to 1979: a discussion of the Walkman, a device that used to play music on something called a cassette tape.
As always, Episode 6 is right here, or you can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes. And we'll have some more links related to Episode 6 just below the audio player...
