The podcast/syndication edit for our 7/27 Revenge of the 80s Radio show is up and available at the bottom of this post. This week, Taco Ockerse is our guest. During our conversation, Taco discusses his growing up around the world, how he developed his love for American music classics and later came up with the idea to record them in a new wave style, his music and acting career, how his hit “Puttin’ on the Ritz” almost wasn’t, an interesting story behind his video for “Singin’ In the Rain” and what he is doing today. We will also play some of Taco;s most recent recordings, including a remix of his Swing Medley. Our conversation leads off hour 2 of the show.
Plus, learn how you can win tickets to see Bow Wow Wow, Gene Loves Jezebel and Dale Bozzio live at B.B. King’s Blues Club and Grill in NYC on August 21, 2012.
We will also play classics by INXS, Kim Wilde, The Housemartins, Kirsty MacColl, ABC, Jimmy Barnes, The Little Girls and more.
