This week on Talking 80s Music we celebrated the life of Johann (Hans) Holzel during the 10th anniversary of his passing. Better known under the name Falco, he blazed a trail with international hits that fused dance, rock and rap as well as mixed the English and German languages. Expect to hear a retrospective mix, a remix of "Coming Home (Jeanny Part 2)," a wild mix of "Vienna Calling (live)" and "Out Of The Dark." Probably spent a lot more time on Falco than expected. His death in 1998 was one of the first we reported via the 80s Nuts newsletter and we had always liked his work. I do have to say that he will not be forgotten.
Had a few technical difficulties early on but we got through it. Looking forward to next week as we will be taking some of the best free downloads that were made available to fans this year and putting them in our next episode. There are a lot, so we will need to be picky. Otherwise, from all of us at Talking 80s Music and 80s Music Central, we wish you and yours a very merry Christmas, Hanukkah or Winter Solstice.
