Have you wishing all week that you could kick of Autumn with a giant turtle AND have a flashback to 1968?  Sometimes wishes do come true in THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!  Find out when you join UNCLE PETE for Destroy All Planets starring that city leveling, kid loving turtle – Gamera!  At one time, most Earthlings frowned on Gamera’s destruction and even shuttled him off to Mars.  But Gamera is Earth bound and down (as Jerry Reid might sing) and encounters a little interaction with some aliens determined to take over Earth (seems they like the air down there).


When scoutmaster Mr. Shimida (Kojiro Hongo) takes his troop to visit Dr. Dobie (Peter Williams) for a demonstration of their latest hi-tech mini-submarine,  mischievous (and scientifically savvy) scouts Masao (Toru Takatsuka) and Jim (Carl Craig) tinker with the sub’s controls so only they can pilot it properly.  While submerged, they meet Gamera.  But all three are captured by the aliens and Gamera is retrofitted with a mind control gimmick while the boys are held at alien central.  When the boys help release Gamera, the aliens counter with their own giant beastie – Viras (no relation to another of our features, Virus).

Directed by Noriaki Yuasa, this film includes a lengthy Gamera mind-scan sequence that takes us back through some highlights of prior Gamera versus big bad monsters battles.   Released in 1968, this movie is also known as Gamera vs. Viras.

And speaking of disc jockeys, UNCLE PETE does some fond reminiscing and has his own flashback sequence of when his popular TV music program Rock-A-Rama was cancelled and the call went out from the Land Of The Rising Sun for UNCLE PETE to come over and fill the Japanese airwaves with the stuff that only UNCLE PETE can fill airwaves with.  UNCLE PETE also has a bunch of cool and obscure (what else) music videos for you and some rare footage of UNCLE PETE on the radio in Japan!  So join the multimedia guy himself, UNCLE PETE, this Saturday, September 22, 2018 from 10PM to midnight on channel 1301 in Binghamton, Sayre/Montrose (PA), Corning/Elmira/Hornell and all points in NY and PA around those places, channel 99 for the Utica/Rome area channels and 30 for all the hundreds of square miles north of the NY State Thruway right up to Canada and on channel 2 for all our brand new viewers in Cortland County and nearby areas.  Don’t forget our replays at midnight and 2AM!  And in the Ithaca, NY area, watch us on channel 13 at 9PM and midnight.  Don’t forget to contact us at unclepeteshow  “”Fall” into some fire-breathing turtle action and a peek into UNCLE PETE’s past.  It’s Destroy All Planets  – remixed, remastered, and real spiffy – on the next  DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!

(And to see the story that started it all – watch the DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN on BETA MAX TV on all ROKU devices and TVs for the Big Turtle’s debut in Gammera the Invincible !  and
