10 recent Bill Shute posts at BTC (July-October 2019)

Filed under: Uncategorized — kendrasteinereditions @ 2:00 am

My bi-weekly column is still running over at BTC––I just sent Chris a review of the 1954 season of the Roy Rogers radio show, which will run at the end of January 2020, and while I have a few weeks here where my workload from my job is back to normal, I’ll try to bang out a few more pieces for BTC, and finish a few of the half-completed pieces  in my draft box, so there will be material to get through the end of March 2020. Since you may not read BTC regularly, here are links to 10 pieces of mine from the last few months….
Of course, there will continue to be regular posts of mine here at KSE…so check back every week or so, and one or two (or even three) new posts will magically appear…

Well, there should be something for everyone among these 10 reviews/columns/call them what you will. The ELVIS piece was very popular among readers and generated a number of e-mails and text messages—-read about how I was almost killed over an Elvis cassette…or not.

Also, most (but not all, unfortunately) of the films I’ve been reviewing in recent months can be seen for free online, so if something like WALKING BACK or TROOPERS THREE or WALK EAST ON BEACON or TAKE THE STAND appeals to you, find it on You Tube or elsewhere, and have a free night in….it should be better than 96% of what’s playing at your local multi-plex…and now that Disney is pulling older Fox films that they now own from revival showings, that number will go up to 98%.

Thanks to Chris at BTC for offering me a bi-weekly platform. His many readers are exactly the kind of audience who would find the write-ups on vintage films and music and comics and the somewhat-fictionalized anecdotes from my life to be entertaining and informative. I’ve been writing for BTC and its earlier print versions for 30+ years now, probably closer to 35. I’ve known Chris since I operated the Inner Mystique Records label back in the early 1980’s. To quote a band I dislike, it’s been a long, strange trip.
