EPISODE153 - Talking 80s Music with Martin Hennessy

This week, we focused on Wide Boy Awake -- the short-lived project by former Adam & The Ants bassist Kevin Mooney. No retrospective mix necessary as we touched on all their singles ("Chicken Outlaw," "Slang Teacher," "Billy Hyena" and "Bona Venture.") If people are known by the company they keep, Wide Boy Awake will be remembered kindly as their songs appear on many compilations of the decade.

We also played a demo of the new OMD song, "Sister Marie Says," and sample of "Ain't Gonna Die" from Bruce Kulick's upcoming album, BK3. What better way to hear what's coming to stores near you next year. Technically, we had a slight problem calling into the chat room and starting the show. For some reason the software dialpad wouldn't let us enter our passcode, making us start a little late. But otherwise, all went well.
