EPISODE152 - Talking 80s Music with Martin Hennessy

This time, we celebrated Paul McCartney week. The singer/songwriter released his new live CD/DVD, Good Evening New York City, this week and we gave away a copy of it during our show (with a trivia question.) We will also feature a retrospective mix and a few singles ("Take It Away," "No More Lonely Nights," "Press" and "Put It There") he released during the decade in an brief overview of his illustrious career.

Don't think that more fun could have been had during this show. Martin was able to touch on some of his favorite McCartney songs and remind a few people out there about some of his singles that got brief airplay but are still running around your heads. When it came time to give away the copy of Good Evening New York City... a few of the callers that were holding out for the trivia contest dropped out (the show went longer than normal.) The first call in was from Martin's cousin Johnny... well, he thought it was. You'll understand after hearing it. (Without a second caller behind them, they got a rare second chance and won.)
