This week we featured music ("I Want To Be Free," "The Vow," "Don't Fall In Love (I Said)" and her cover of Martha And The Muffins' "Echo Beach") from the Music Club Deluxe release Good Morning Universe: The Best Of Toyah. The 39-song collection is quite an extensive overview of her career including all her hit singles, stand-out album tracks, a remix, a demo and previously-unreleased tracks. The chameleon, that Toyah is musically and visually, didn't find the same success here in the U.S. as in the U.K. but her career is still worth exploring for the 80s music obsessed.
We also mentioned our plans for next week. Martin will be choosing a variety of his favorite songs for the episode as the show unexpectedly falls on his birthday. He hopes to use this to set a record for most calls in to the show. So use those free weekend cellphone minutes to send him your best wishes. The show starts on Saturday at noon PST, just call (724) 444-7444 and enter call ID 11757 when prompted. The best time to call would be around 12:30pm after the news segment ends but we'll take the calls as soon as possible.
