This week on Talking 80s Music, we set our sights on one of the greatest stories of post-punk and modern rock... the story of the bands Joy Division and New Order. Three shared destinies, some heartbreak and a lot of great music. Expect to hear a Joy Division retrospective mix and live version of "Means To An End" as well as New Order retrospective mix, "Every Little Counts" and "Touched By The Hand Of God." A great primer for those just scratching your head reading this.
Last week we started playing a "Martin's Classic" song... you know, something he dusted off that you might not have heard before (but it in his iPod favorites.) You got to hear a cover of "Since I Fell For You" by Johnny Diesel & The Injectors. Martin would urge you to just buy that self-titled album for your own Christmas or Hanukka gift to unwrap next week. Speaking of next week, the next two episodes of the show (on Duran Duran and then Depeche Mode) will be pre-recorded so they will be available mid-day leading up to our final show on Jan. 8th. Have a great holiday season!
