EPISODE189 - Talking 80s Music with Martin Hennessy

This week we catch up on an act we planned to talk about some time back... The Proclaimers. If there were ever a reason to focus on them, it would be to dispel any notion that they are one of those 90s bands that came out of nowhere and disappeared. (None of that is true.) Expect to hear a retrospective mix, "Throw The 'R' Away," "I'm On My Way" and a live version of "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles.)" We also announce a live interview for next week's show.

If there is a regret here it is that there wasn't a better live version of "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)" as the quality isn't great. The loud crowd also takes away from the feel but, if anything, you get an idea of how much their fans get into the show. Everything else went pretty well and it's amazing how a few subtle changes can fix annoying problems. We still need a fix for Eyebeam but it isn't hurting us to have Martin call back in every 15 minutes or so. (We don't think he works enough.)
