Teletext R Podcast, 2nd February 2022 – Bamber Boozler Unmasked & More Digitiser Lore with Chris Bell (TSC 11/6/21)

Bamber Boozler Tribute by illarterate

Reckon you know all about Bamber Boozler? Think again, maaan!

During the 1990s, Digitiser’s Mr Biffo took it upon himself to expand the Boozler family lore in a long-running series of pre-clickbait headlines. And considering he is a just a man made of yellow pixels, Bamber has led a rich and varied life.

Fervent preservationist Tim Bisley has granted us exclusive access to a long list of the Bamboozle host’s crimes, criticisms and cravings. Prepare yourself for the wasp-chewing, fraud-committing, pink loving/loathing adventures of teatime’s favourite quizmaster.

Fortunately for us, Sir Chris ‘Bellston’ Bell of Digitiser tribute site Super Page 58 is on hand to help Dan pore over the best of Boozler’s worst. Press red to start…

This episode was guest edited by Kyra Diamondine.

This segment was originally broadcast as part of the Teletext Sofa Club livestream on 11th June 2021.
