EPISODE125 - Talking 80s Music with Martin Hennessy

There are few times that we try to hit you over the head with something you should know already. Why would we do that? Well, sometimes the most glaring gaps in our musical landscape are big holes waiting to be filled. Heck, even this week, someone in the chat room drew a blank to this week's artist. So we decided this week to pay tribute to late legendary blues guitarist Stevie Ray Vaughan and feature a few clips of his guitar-work that appeared on hits you should know as well as a few live tracks ("Cold Shot," "House Is A Rockin'" and "Crossfire") that were recorded in Asbury Park at the end of 1988. A sad story but a brilliant musician.

Had a few odd moments in the chat room this week. Here and there, we had glitches in the chat area (should probably try the other version of the software next week.) A lot of new friendly faces popped in. Long episode trying to squeeze a lot of information in. The edit went up later that night after Martin got back from his niece and nephew's birthday party. (They really got a kick out of his interview with the Chipmunks last year.) All is well otherwise and we are all eagerly awaiting some downtime. Have a great week.
