Hi and welcome to Alternative Airwaves - I'm your host Steve, bringing you the best in Creative Commons music. This is the Weekly Airwave: one track with some information about the song or the artist.
This week's track: Boomerang by HoneyChrome. Boomerang is a great pop track, released in 2018 by an American artist, based on Brooklyn N-Y-C. I find it really reminiscent of early 2000's pop, with a bit of eighties flair mixed in. It's a fun, short track and well worth following to see what he comes out with for 2019!

I watched 1984’s Splash (starring Tom Hanks, Daryl Hannah and John Candy) last weekend, finally crossing that comedy off my list. It got me thinking about my favourite movies growing up, and a lot of them had the same theme: mythical monsters.
I’m not sure if there’s actually a genre for these movies, but this fits best as far as I can tell. If you weren’t familiar with Splash before, it’s about a man searching for love who finds it in the form of a mermaid, temporarily granted legs for a short pe
We had a lot of movies taped off TV growing up, and one of the tapes that got repeat views was a little-known movie called Bigfoot. It was one of ABC’s “Wonderful World of Disney” presentations, but other than that, until looking it up on IMDB, I knew nothing about it. I assumed it was either made for TV or had a small theatrical release – apparently it was part of “Walt Disney’s Wonderful World of Color”.
This movie had some pretty great production value for a made-for-TV movie, if you ask me. Sure, Harry and the Hendersons is probably the most recognized Sasquatch film out there from the 80’s, but Bigfoot is my favourite. It’s got comedy moments and even a little bit of suspense. If you’re young enough, it can even be scary at times.
Some other mythical monster movies I remember watching – Baby: Secret of the Lost Legend (which I should re-visit, one day). Actually, that’s about all I remember. What are some other good ones from the 80s?
