EPISODE147 - Talking 80s Music with Martin Hennessy

This week on Talking 80s Music, we celebrated the life of one of the most powerful set of lungs in R&B... the late Luther Vandross. Quite a bit of work to cover a man that was very busy during the decade as a solo artist, backing vocalist and arranger but we do our best to do right by him. Expect a big retrospective mix, a live version of "A House Is Not A Home" as well as "I'll Let You Slide" and "Give Me A Reason." The mix is well worth paying attention to as you can see how diverse an artist he was by just a sampling of some of his work.

Need to put that link up for you to see a young Luther with his group Listen My Brother on an episode of Sesame Street. See if you can spot him. Went a bit longer on this episode than we expected but there is just so much to cover that leads you to his career and after our decade of focus. Had a lot of fun but a lot more work than normal. Must say that it sounds pretty good in the final mix. Good shows are what keeps us going and this could be one of them.
