EPISODE191 - Talking 80s Music with Martin Hennessy

This week we decided to expand our exploration of music genres by looking at the New York rap trio the Beastie Boys. No one blurred the edges of hip-hop, rock and punk more than they did as they evolved from a hardcore punk act to a multi-million album selling act. We threw together a retrospective mix, played their first international hit ("She's On It") and dusted off the 1989 demo of "The Sounds Of Science."

There was a lot going on during this episode and as there are many fans of the show that are more interested in new wave, metal or rock... we have a mission here to talk about the music of the 1980s. Yes, there may be a day we do a show on Vangelis or some other area of music but never let it be said that we get stagnant or repetitive. Technically, the sound was better than normal (could be how we separated our cabling.) So many things planned for the next few shows. Have a great weekend!
