Episode 37 - Van Ling & Jim Hosking
It was a Director special this week as Nick and Nathaniel were joined by directors Van Ling & Jim Hosking…
The first rule of Fan Club is… tell everyone you know about it because we need the listeners. Comedians Nick Helm and Nathaniel Metcalfe are fans of stuff. Weird stuff. Mainstream stuff. Niche stuff. Stuff. They remember the 80’s because they lived the 80’s. Nick is an Alice Cooper obsessed, Bobble-Head collecting, film fanatic and Nathaniel works in a comic shop and listens to Anthony Newly records. They have lived a life on the fringes of society, shunned by the mainstream as they have meticulously obsessed over things that no one else cares about, but now we’re living in an age where everything is nostalgic. Star Wars. Tony The Tiger. Even Furbees. They’ve waited all their lives for a platform and this is their time. Join them and a special guest every Friday afternoon as they talk about current trends, classic films, favourite bands and retro toys. It’s like the opposite of Room 101 where guests root through the attics of their minds to discuss anything from forgotten Saturday morning cartoons, abandoned theme parks or breakfast cereal characters whilst Nick and Nathaniel try and understand where their passion comes from. In this ramshackle, helter-skelter hour filled with tangents and off topic diatribes, Nick and Nathaniel try to keep the show on track as they wade through passionate fan chats, play obscure cover versions and force special guests to play Nathaniel Metcalfe’s legendary Game Show ‘Better or Worse’
Episode 24 - Matthew Holness & James Hyman
Nick & Nathaniel were joined in the Fan Club-House this week by Matthew Holness. He shared his love of horror films and talked about his new film Possum. Nick and Nat also spoke to James Hyman who has the biggest collection of magazine’s in the world – The Hyman Archive.
Episode 19 - Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero
This is an extra special episode that will blow your mind! FUBAR Radio’s Nick Helm and Mark Simmons joined forces for a Fan Club and Film-ish crossover extravaganza! Mark and Nick sat down with the dons of cult classic films; Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero. Tommy and Greg’s first film The Room hit screens 15 years ago and has taken the world by storm. If you haven’t seen The Room, do yourselves a favour and go watch it. We’ll see you back here in two hours. Ahead of the release of their second film Best F(r)iends Volume 1 – yes there is a second volume on its way – Nick and Mark had a few questions they were dying to ask Greg and Tommy. For fans of Film-ish and Fan Club, you won’t be disappointed. Ryan or Ryan may or may not have been posed…
