"Metal Mickey" TV For Radio cast album

Post by Mark »

Don't think this has been mentioned, but a "Metal Mickey" cast album,"TV For Radio" is available as an amazon digital music download, and has been for quite a while.

Obviously recorded at the time the series was running, I'm not aware it was ever released, although I have heard one or two of the tracks before.

Featuring a mix of songs and speech, most of the songs are covers by various members of the cast which are pertinent to their characters.

One of my favourites ( and one I had previously heard) is 'Fruitbat Rap' with all the cast, there is also the theme tune and the song 'You've Got A Friend In a Robot', which featured in the episode "Panto Mickey".

It's a lovely album.

Now...if only Network would release a complete box set ( my dream release)...!

Thanks for pointing that out Mark!

I too would love to see the rest of Metal Mickey out on DVD. I was just having a sneaky read of "Metal Mickey's Boogie Book" only this morning!

Yes, the Metal Mickey shaped book, I have that too...it's good.!

I noticed there is also a "Metal Mickey" rap song in digital music as well, from last year.

There were a few singles released, back in the day, one or two covers like "Lollipop" and "I Wanna Hold Your Hand", alongside originals such as "Sillycon Chip", would make a nice mini-compilation.

Nice, didn't know about that.

It's a good addition to what merchandise there is/was.
