02.26.2010: Face the Wrath of Episode 14

Imperial Sandtroopoer and good friend Rob Johnson sits down for a chat on this month''s episode of he Kaijucast!

I don’t know what it is about this February. I know it’s a “short month”, but c’mon. It’s only two days shorter. Why does it affect everyone so? Well even though my month has been mega packed, I still managed to get the episode done on time and uploaded days before Merry ol’ March shows up. Make sure you download episode fourteen (available, for instance, right here!) and listen to the awesome tunes, news and interviews. And this month’s Wrath of Daimajin discussion. I’m so glad I decided to make this a regular feature (hopefully it will last through the whole list!) and I hope more people participate in the next month’s discussion (see below).  This month, I went back to the Kaijucast basics and invited my good friend Rob Johnson to join me in “the studio”. Rob’s not a big Godzilla fan, so I wanted to find out just what he knew of the big beast.

Here’s the music listing for this episode:

1. Mothra’s song by Yuji Koseki from Mothra vs. Godzilla (1964)
2. Main Title by Tadashi Yamauchi from Gammera The Invincible (1965)
3. Kong and Susan 1 by Akira Ifukube from King Kong Escapes (1971)
4. Destroy Hedora from the Ballads of Godzilla album
5. Main Title (aka Ultraseven’s Song) by Tohru Fuyuki Ultraseven (1975)
6. King Kong vs. Godzilla Main Title from Godzilla A Capella
7. Wrath of Daimajin Song Track  (not sure of the title) by Akira Ifukube
8. Wrath of Daimajin Song Track (again,  not sure of the title) by Akira Ifukube
9. Highway Road by Richiiro Manabe from Godzilla vs. Megalon (1973)

Stuff I can’t Afford: Wonderfest with Ed Godziszewski

Daimajin Kannon footage can be seen in this youtube video from Kadokawa – if you want to skip it to 1:08, that’s where the footage really starts.


For the third assignment, you’ll need to watch the classic 1972 Godzilla flick, Godzilla vs. Gigan. I’ll be watching the Sony DVD that came out in 2004 some time towards the end of the month.   If you have comments, questions or even just want to tell me what you liked best about this movie, email them to controller@kaijucast.com sometime in the first three weeks of March  and I’ll compile everything for the March episode.

You can download the fourteenth episode of the Kaijucast right here! Feel free to write me if you are enjoying the podcasts or if you have any music requests, questions or even ideas for future shows, too. Make sure that if you have a facebook account, become a fan of the Kaijucast!
