EPISODE18 - Talking 80s Music with Martin Hennessy

This week was difficult. When Martin decided to do the show on Saturdays (we held an online vote for time of day,) we didn't even consider that the NFL draft would be competing for our attention. But, we made it through and I'm sure there won't be another one for 51 episodes. Maybe we should have played the Chicago Bears "Super Bowl Shuffle" but we can't do that once a year.

Anyhow, this week we featured some very new music. We featured "Fuzzy Freaky" by David Byrne. As you should know, Byrne was the frontman for the Talking Heads. We also played "New Man" by Sonic Hub featuring Martin Fry. Fry, of course, is the vocalist from ABC. A very dance oriented episode, I guess. We also mentioned upcoming CD giveaways (Elvis Costello and Erasure.) If you are interested in one of those, keep your eyes on the 80's Nuts newsletter also. It may be a call-in winner on our show needing a password from the newsletter. Haven't decided yet.
