This week we focused on Asia (the band, not the continent.) 'Supergroup' is a word that's been tossed around a lot recently so why not look at one of the biggest ones during the early 1980s. We talked with keyboardist Geoff Downes about his career, the bands he's been with and the reunion of the original Asia. We also play a retrospective mix of their singles as well as live versions of "Only Time Will Tell" and "The Smile Has Left Your Eyes." Definitely try to catch them right now while they are on tour now.
Looks like we will have to do more tweaking to give a better live experience. Sure, only a small percentage of our listeners get to hear it live but that doesn't mean we'll neglect them. We'll work on using the new software next week as we expect to have more free time. Great to see Linda join our regular crowd of misfits in the chat room to see what really goes on during an episode recording.
