EPISODE178 - Talking 80s Music with Martin Hennessy

There are just some songs that are tied to the 1980s. "I Melt With You" is among a small handful that make us recall the decade as a whole. This week, we talked with Modern English frontman Robbie Grey about the group's history, the song and touring prior to the release of their new studio album, Soundtrack. We played a retrospective mix, "Gathering Dust," "Someone's Calling" and their new single, "It's Ok." The single is available at iTunes and the album comes out next week.

We really have to thank Mr. Grey for his time and insight. Martin was able to mark-off another artist from his dream interviews list (yes, he does have one.) Technically, where do we start? We got a little chirping sound during the interview -- let's pretend they are birds, shall we? The chat room and live recording didn't happen for a second week due to call-in issues. We have resolved ourselves to record next week's show with the Macbook as a lot of these problems should be alleviated for the live show.
