Welcome aboard The Giddy Carousel of Pop! We are a Smash Hits appreciation podcast dedicated to the swingorilliant British pop magazine which ran from 1978 to 2006. In each episode, we take an old issue of Ver Hits (usually from the 1980s but may slip a year or two either side of that) and discuss what’s on its pages, looking at who’s riding high on the carousel and who’s heading down the dumper. We always have a guest to help us along the way, so we’ll be talking to the readers, the writers ...

It's '70s September, and we're rocking out with one of the all-time "dark metal" classics--the über-famous, über-controversial, ümlaut-loving Blue Oyster cult and their signature hit, "Don't Fear the Reaper."

Just who is MC Skat Kat, and what's he hiding?
