EPISODE180 - Talking 80s Music with Martin Hennessy

This week we talk with Culture Club guitarist/keyboardist Roy Hay live and discuss the band, the reunions and his upcoming appearance with Boys Don't Cry & Friends on June 12th at The Canyon Club. We play a retrospective mix and live tracks ("I'm Afraid Of Me" and "Church Of The Poison Mind") as well as take a surprise call.

It couldn't have been more of a pleasure doing that interview. We did have some issues but we worked around them. Never give up. No idea why we couldn't see the live callers updated in the chatroom, then lost our phone connection and during the edit noticed that part of the interview wasn't there (hence a slight change in audio quality when the interview starts.) But, it's talking with these people and sharing their stories that are most important.

Thank you for this interview. I always loved CC's music. But I don't think I've ever heard Roy interviewed before. so it was nice to hear what he has to say. He's very well spoken and intelligent. I wish during CC's time we had heard more from him and also Jon and Mikey as far as interviews. Yes, George is talented but I find his flippant bitchiness rather tiresome after awhile. If George's personality hadn't taken over, I think the band would have lasted longer and been respected more. Also love the mix. I loved how you played a lot of their more obscure songs that haven't been heard enough.
