On Mar. 25th we (the music community) lost an impact artist -- someone who affected several of the music charts in the 1970s and 1980s. This week on Talking 80s Music, we focused our attention to the music and career of Dan Seals and do our best to pay tribute to an often overlooked crossover artist. We featured a retrospective mix, "My Old Yellow Car," "One Friend," "Love On Arrival" and an interview with him recorded in 1990. We also took calls from Aaron (about the interview and the station) and Ben (about Aerosmith, gaming and his PC woes.)
Crazy day to do show editing as we had an Easter egg hunt to go to (didn't hurt that food was there.) That meant a late night doing the audio edit. Listening to it after the final edit, there is some sound degradation in the interview audio. It is understandable after being chopped up multiple times. Can't thank Aaron enough for sharing his interview with Mr. Seals for this special episode.
