For your enjoyment, below are the collected works from the series Talking 80s Music with Martin Hennessy.  The show ran from 2006 to 2011 with a majority recorded live.  During that time we covered a lot of material and it is great to have it all in one place.  (So go browsing that artist list on the side.)  We also talked to some great people... from fans of the show to artists that made the decade worth remembering.  Here's a definitive interview list for you:

King Swamp's Walter Wray
Information Society's Paul Robb
Red Flag's Chris Reynolds
The Nails' David Kaufman
Former Vixen drummer Roxy Petrucci
Alvin And The Chipmunks
Boys Don't Cry's Nick Richards
Dwight Twilley
Gary Wright
Former Sheriff/Alias guitarist Steve DeMarchi
Alan Parsons
Buggles/Asia/Yes keyboardist Geoff Downes
Quarterflash's Rindy And Marv Ross
Jon Mikl Thor
Martha Davis of The Motels
The Outfield
The Knack bassist Prescott Niles
Ron Keel
Robbie Grey of Modern English
Culture Club guitarist Roy Hay
Irene Cara
Deon Estus
Stan Bush
Peter Godwin
Foghat drummer Roger Earl
Former TNT vocalist Tony Harnell
Former King Kobra/Signal vocalist Marcie Free
Andy McCluskey of OMD

Diverse bunch there.  The list of artists that we wanted to interview and also do episodes of the show on was immense but our time ran out.  It happens.  The above listed artists were very gracious with their time which makes their episodes 'must listen' material for fans.  (Consider them extensive Behind The Music episodes as told by the artist themselves.)  We had a blast doing the show and thank our listeners and guests for making it an amazing run.
