We specialise in Betamax – forget VHS it will never take off


Man about town and star of RTRFM’s Movie Squad ‘I Love Movies…’ Tristan Fidler hosts the Halloween edition of VHS Tracking on Up Late – a sprawling collage of horror movie soundtracks over 3 hours with dialogue, trailers and other incidentals.

Tristan says:

 I am proud of this show – mainly because I survived playing eerie, creepy music alone in a studio late at night. Truly felt like a Final Girl when the show was over, haha.

– Only now do I realise I completely forgot to play Goblin’s ‘Suspiria’. Massive oversight.
– Of the music I had on hand, I avoided playing ‘Utrenja (Ewangelia)’ from The Shining because I knew it would freak me out too much.
– I also didn’t play Iggy Pop’s ‘Why Was I Born?’ from Freddy’s Dead but more because it is a pretty terrible song (not one of Jim Osterberg’s finest moments)”.
