Mike Ranger returns to rule over this retro rumble between 1979, 1987 & 1996!

It's time for another episode of everyone's favorite retro game show, Dueling Decades! It might be 2021, but we're determined to take you back in time with the best of January 1979, 1987, and 1996! In order to do that, we need a judge that can really handle the gavel. Not just any judge, but a real savvy retro savant, it's the man we like to call, Mike Ranger! That being said, let's take a look at this week's competitors. First up, hailing from the great white north, Joe Findlay brings the best of January 1979. Our next competitor took time away from listening to 45 hours of a Grateful Dead song, Marc James is back with his own generous helping of January 1987. Rounding out this time machine trio, Mancrush looks to get back into the win column with his offerings from January 1996!

Mike Ranger might be friends with these gents, but he's not about to take any lip! This highly contested race might ruffle some feathers. In this episode, you might hear about Betty Rubble's dangerous curves, blood-sucking dates, a miniature horse named Ginger, cross country bank robbers, assault with a deadly Dick, sliding on the hood of your car, Franklin's excessively long wait, places to store your Zack Morris phone, Joe knows Tony Dorsit, Mike and Mancrush serenade, rap metal's humble beginning, Motorola changes the game, an album Mancrush hid from his mom, getcha rocks off with Joe, and who the hell is Texas Walker Ranger?

You're favorite Chewlies Gum rep, Scott Schiaffo of Clerks judges this battle between 1977, 1988 & 1999!

Yes, I assure you, we're back! Fans will know this week's judge best from his role as the Chewlies Gum rep in the Kevin Smith classic, Clerks. Scott Schiaffo took some time away from getting angry crowds of customers throwing cigarettes and calling clerks around the country "cancer merchants" to swing the gavel for us this week! Not to worry, there was plenty to throw this week! First up, Drew "The Professor" Zakmin is back, and he's got the best "weak" experience of January 1999 he could find. Mancrush drew the year he never seems to have any luck with, January 1988. Will his week be strong enough to get him a win this time? Rounding out the trifecta of nostalgia this week, Marc James jams all the way back to the first week of January 1977! 

Scott was a super awesome funny dude, and his stories were amazing! If you dig what they talked about in this episode with Scott, go grab a copy of his new book Vicious Dogs Attack Me In Sleepless Nights Of Summer! In this episode, you might hear about how Scott almost got arrested before auditioning for Clerks, sodium enriched lunches for the kids, a weird incestual comic book tale, January always draws the short straw for pop culture, a legitimate bootleg gaming system, drunk dialing 976 numbers, Schwarzenegger news, Drew can't stop talking about Monica Lewinsky, the Pinwheel theme almost resurfaces, Hogan goes down on Nash, Lynda Carter says hello in the green room, a band full of retreads, Nixon's testicles make an appearance, Affleck eats animal crackers, hitchhiking is never a good idea, turns out hydrogen bombs are useless in space, tours galore, Keith Richards possibly saved the world, 1993 was a great year for pickle in a pouch, convention life, The Black Crowes, and what does a straight jacket have to do with an audition?

We're going to make this episode, a Blockbuster night! You may not live close to the last Blockbuster in Bend, Oregon, but we'll do our best to emulate a Friday night walking up and down the aisles looking for the perfect movie.

The phantom phreak himself Renoly Santiago picks the worst of 1975, 1989 & 1997!

Hack the planet! This week, we have the King of Nynex, the Phantom Phreak himself, Renoly Santiago behind the gavel to judge this "worst of" episode of Dueling Decades! Aside from Hackers, you'll know Renoly from such classics as Con Air, Dangerous Minds, and Daylight. After a last-minute call out, Trevor saves the day by joining us as our first contestant in this retro skirmish. For this one, Trevor came packing some heat with the worst of December 1989! Apparently, Mancrush traveled back to a year where he really enjoyed going to bars. In spite of that, he brought back a six-pack of Zima and the worst of December 1997 with him! Rounding out the competition this week, Marc James did his research from an abandoned farmhouse in Walnut Grove, Minnesota to bring us the worst of December 1975!

If you're a fan of Hackers, head on over to Renoly's website www.phantomphreak.com and pick up some sweet Hackers merch! Mancrush apologizes in advance if he grabbed the very last King of Nynex shirt! Anyhow, go grab your own partial "garbage file", and listen to this episode which may contain something about Marc's hard little stones, a useless rubber body accessory, toys that keep you up at night, a White House spelling bee, choking your boss at work, lightning crashes, shacking up at the polo club, Renoly and the Culkins, City Kids, John Hughes lost his way, waking up Mancrush's wife, Trevor hates harpoons that flow, Uncle Steve's a stalker, Danza gets whacked, Bruce Willis is allegedly a generous man, Lorelei is no Mandy, behind the scenes with Renoly, Kirk Cameron in a movie no one wanted to see, an American ripoff of a British classic is canned, the Ingalls sling drugs for cash, and Renoly performs a live hypnotism!
