This week on Talking 80s Music, we decided to take another listener request and focus on Scottish new wave act Aztec Camera and their principal singer-songwriter Roddy Frame. Expect a retrospective mix, live version of "Oblivious," their first single "Just Like Gold" and their later single, "The Crying Scene." Sometimes it's almost too easy to call someone a chameleon when all they are doing is evolving musically and pushing their own boundaries. One such act would be Aztec Camera.
Of course, we mess with things as soon as they start working well. It is human nature. So, we started late with a call-in issue, experienced audio drop in a few sections and lost our connection to the news we posted online. At least two problems were able to be edited in post-production to fix them and the other forces listeners to visit our new news section. This could be a blessing in disguise. We couldn't entirely go away from the news as the knowledge is what keeps fans on their toes (and keeps Martin full of it... knowledge.)
