This week on Talking 80s Music, you hear The Truth, the whole Truth and nothing but The Truth as we focused on the U.K. act of the same name. Expect a retrospective mix of some of their singles, "A Step In The Right Direction," "Weapons Of Love" and, the very hard to find theme from the 1987 film The Hidden, "It's Hidden," to cover the many different phases of their career. Listen and ask yourself how many bands they sound like. The vocals on their biggest U.S. hit, "Weapons Of Love," remind Martin of the late Robert Palmer.
The mixing did seem to go too well but the problem remained that we had a mic that almost disappeared in the mix. To fix that, we had to accept a constant hum in the background... or some intermittent static. We opted for the static. This does mean we have to look at some changes for the next show. But overall, we had a great time and met some new listeners.
