EPISODE190 - Talking 80s Music with Martin Hennessy

We took a little time out to look at the importance of the rhythm section. To hit the point home (that a good band can't succeed with a bad pulse), we focused this week's show on talented bassist/vocalist/composer/producer Deon Estus. The man created a groove within a little group called Wham! that turned pop music on it's ear and brought us his own top 5 hit "Heaven Help Me." Deon was kind enough to call us on his way into Las Vegas for a performance tonight at Monte Carlo's Brew Pub with Boys Don't Cry & Friends (you really should have seen them live by now.) We played the previously mentioned hit as well as "Me Or The Rumours" and "Spell."

We experienced some slight audio issues (he was driving on his way through the desert so some audio drops are to be expected and a new mic hum emerged) but everything came out well. Left a lot of the show unedited and think it sounds a bit better... maybe more human that way. No robots over here. Martin is off relaxing before he heads out to see Boys Don't Cry & Friends live. Not often that he can see 3 different people that he's interviewed live on stage in their own environment.
