EPISODE19 - Talking 80s Music with Martin Hennessy

Interesting photo. This was taken last year in New York at Tony Bennett's 80th birthday party. Sure, Martin looks a little pasty there in the bright lights next to Mr. Elvis Costello. He's a huge fan of his Spike album -- says it's the track diversity and the intimate writing blah blah blah. So, we were both shocked when we were offered a few CDs to give away for this specific podcast.

We featured the songs "(I Don't Want To Go To) Chelsea" from the new compilation Rock And Roll Music and the ballad "I Want You" from The Best Of Elvis Costello: The First 10 Years. Both are worth having in your collection. Anyhow, oddly enough, one of the callers winning a disc was a gentleman named Charlie from Las Vegas (where we're located.) Fun episode and more to come. Lot of work in the next month. Until next week...
