Dr. Snuggles and friends return for episode 60 of your guide to the truly astonishing world of softcore films, and the world’s number one podcast on that subject!
Sometimes, when we do slightly odder fare on the show, we like to start recording a little later, have a few drinks and get a bit loose. We’ve done a few like that before (New York Nights, The Naked Detective, Tina and the Professor). Joined by drunkcasting hero Matt, from our sister podcasts Songs on Trial and Movie Melt, we decided to do it again this episode, because Peter Kay’s 1987 British sort-of-comedy breast-fetishising shot-on-video epic Miss-Adventures at Mega Boob Manor (aka Action Video Presents Mega Manor) is certainly one of the odder movies we’ve done. Something happened though, and the next thing we knew our other guest Tim had left and it was 7 and a half hours later, and we were unbelievably drunk. To top it off, then we had audio issues with the last half hour of the show, so we had to re-record that. The result is almost 4 hours of Get Soft, which is a ridiculous runtime for a podcast. It’s either our best episode or our worst - at this point we have no ability to know, but please give us a call and tell us.
The Softcore Spotlight focuses on Stacey Owen, one of only three actors credited in the film. Owen was a Scottish model who’d recently won (or come second in, depends on the source) 1986 Miss Wet T-Shirt World Competition, and was in her first film with Miss-Adventures at Mega Boob Manor, and was on the verge of superstardom. Though she only modelled between 1986 (maybe 1985, depends on the source) and 1991, she’s still remembered very fondly by Brits and Scots of a certain age. We go through her story, aided by clips from the ‘documentary’ The Stacey Owen Story!
