EPISODE183 - Talking 80s Music with Martin Hennessy

This week we took a look at the short solo career of singer-songwriter (and later producer) Jon Astley. Expect to hear his singles ("Jane's Getting Serious" and "Put This Love To The Test") and "But Is It Commercial."

Yes, this is the first of a few pre-recorded shows as Martin is getting ready for a much needed family vacation. The news is still in there, so they aren't recorded that far ahead of time. But he did get to exchange a few quick emails with this week's artist. It says a lot about why this show does what it does when it can't find a good biography out there on an artist that had two hits on the U.S. charts. We fill in that gap... with the help of Mr. Astley himself.
