This week on Talking 80s Music, we filled a historical gap by focusing on the Joe Perry Project. A lot of people think that Aerosmith has just been a juggernaut since the 1970s but there was a low moment when the band was without their guitarist as he walked... a different way. We played live versions of "Let The Music Do The Talking" and "Once A Rocker, Always A Rocker," "East Coast, West Coast" and a clip of "We've Got A Long Way To Go" from his new solo album, Have Guitar, Will Travel. It's an interesting story for fans and rock-a-holics alike. If anything, it leaves you with questions. What would have happened if the albums were promoted properly? Would the amazing success of Aerosmith have happened without this fractured moment? Did corporate sabotage keep fans from hearing great music? You'll have to answer those questions on your own.
Before we get to the technical stuff, we've been asked by our sponsors to get as many listeners to fill out this survey for us about the show. We'd be very appreciative if you do. Anyhow, using the system we have set up, we've eliminated the hum in the last few episodes. Don't see us playing with things to make them any worse. Did have a fun time on this show and our future episodes look even more promising.
