EPISODE179 - Talking 80s Music with Martin Hennessy

This Memorial Day weekend we paid tribute to the late songwriter/vocalist Ronnie James Dio by focusing on his work with Dio. We could have done a whole episode on each phase of his career but we may get to another piece of the puzzle another time. We played a retrospective mix, a live version of "Stand Up And Shout," "Mystery" and "Naked In The Rain." Quite varied but also important tracks in understanding what the man and the band brought to the heavy metal dinner table.

As you'll hear during the show, we took the plunge and tested out a few technical changes. The live recording fared well for the first 30 minutes (and then started getting choppy.) Could be the program we are using to call in. We'll be testing out a few other options before next week's show. Hopefully you enjoy the new sound as we keep trying to better the show.
