      This week’s Revenge of the 80s Radio podcast is up and available at the end of this post. After driving for several hours to and from my vacation spot last week, it was only natural to play some of the great driving songs of the 1980s on this week’s show. These tracks included songs about driving, cars, scenery and classic alternative music we like to blast on our CD player while at the wheel.

      Artists featured in this weeks show include Men Without Hats, Voice of the Beehive, The Kings, Pearl Harbor and the Explosions and Nikki and the Corvettes. We also played new cuts from Josie Cotton, ABC and Stan Ridgway with Pietra Wexstun. <.p>

        As you might remember, I was on vacation last week. Beth and I took the car and drove for about 6 hours each way. As any vacation driver knows, one needs plenty of exciting psych-up music while driving. I brought some of my favorite CDs along and enjoyed the trip. Therefore, this week’s Revenge of the 80s will be packed with some of the nest driving music of the 1980s.

        Artists featured include The Little Girls, Nikki and the Corvettes, The Kings and Jason and the Scorchers.

            The podcast for our 8/28 Revenge of the 80s Radio show is up and available at the bottom of this post. This week’s show features a conversation with Josie Cotton, who became the world’s new wave sweetheart when she performed (already an international hit) “Johnny Are You Queer” in the movie Valley Girl. While she is known most for singing “Johnny” and the undue controversy surrounding it, the musical world of Josie Cotton is much more than the image she had through an industry from which she walked away.

              Tonight’s Revenge of the 80s Radio show will feature a conversation with Josie Cotton. Most 80s fans remember Cotton for her performance of “Johnny, Are You Queer?” on Valley Girl. While it was an international hit, controversy over the song wound up depriving us at the time of the musical talents of this fine songwriter. Whiners from all sides tried to denounce her as an artist simply because of the use of the word “queer” in the song. Record labels, MTV and promoters feared the bad press involved and some truly special works like “He Could Be the One” and “No Pictures of Dad” did not get the attention they should have deserved. Josie left the spotlight for several years after her second album and a disdain for simple-minded industry suits at the time.

She founded A Woman’s Voice, where she sets up seminars, workshops and recording sessions as a form of therapy. There will soon be a documentary featuring Robin Lane and the Chartbusters. We will keep you up on the details as it develops.

                          This week’s Revenge of the 80s Radio show features a conversation with Wang Chung‘s Jack Hues, who will be on this year’s Regeneration Tour. Our interview leads off the second hour of the show and is available at the end of this post.


                          Hues’ background in the UK’s local music scene led him to partner up with Nick Feldman and, later, Darrin Costin to form Huang Chung. As the band moved its talents to Geffen records, the name change to Wang Chung was the next step to international stardom with their big hit “Dance Hall Days,” a track that was actually originated during the Huang Chung years, with strong 40s big-band and jazz influences that foretold the future for Hues: Wang Chung continues to produce hits, combining electric new wave with real horns and early jazz elements. The Mosaic LP featured their biggest hit to date: “Everybody Have Fun Tonight.” Costin left the band before that project and after the 1989 album, The Warmer Side of Cool, Hues and Feldman pursued other projects. One of Hues’ recent experiments is with a new jazz band, The Quartet, which evolved from some of his past ventures in that genre. The Quartet performs throughout the UK; some of their music can be found on The Quartet’s MySpace page.

                            Tonight’s Revenge of the 80s Radio show will feature classic cover songs from the era. There were some very good and quite interesting ones done then. The art of the cover song is lost on some people today; my take on the right approach to performing someone else’s work is to either improve on it or put a special spin on the piece. In recent years, the music industry has allowed generic pop singers to perform mellow generic versions of once-great tracks. One bad cover that still sticks in my craw is the whiny version of Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time” by some boy-band-sounding singer (kind of like Kyle Troy from The Adventures of Ford Fairlaine). In the 1980s, new wavers and alt-rockers of the time found ways to make the music their own while at the same time paying tribute to the original.

                            Among the classic covers we will feature are performances by Trio, Laibach, Strawberry Switchblade, The Little Girls, The Fine Young Cannibals and Blondie.

This week’s Revenge of the 80s Radio features a conversation with actress Sally Kellerman, best known to 80s fans as Rodney Dangerfield’s English Professor/love interest in the movie Back to School and the Judge in Moving Violations. She also helped create the character that would elevate her to legendary status: Major Margaret Houlihan in the MASH movie. Sally’s memorable voice can be heard on several commercials and in many animated features.
                                        Much of our discussion is about Sally’s music. While most people know her as an actress and voiceover specialist, Kelerman’s love is music. She had a record contract at age 18 and a well-received album in the early 1970s. She recently released a new CD, Sally, which she promoted while out touring with what she calls her “anti-show.” Her celebrated voice translated extremely well to song: her repertoire includes jazz classics, lounge and a very well-done cover of a Stephen Tyler song (which we play at the end of our interview). Our discussion leads off the second hour of the show.

                                        We also played classic-alternative tracks from artists including Strawberry Switchblade, The Little Girls, Devo, Altered Images and Big Audio Dynamite.

                                          Tonight, we talk about Sally’s music: she has been singing since her teens (including a record contract at the age of 18), she tours with a band and has a new CD out, Sally. Our discussion leads off the second hour.

                                              The Podcast For Our 3/27 Show Is Up

                                                All technical difficulties have been rectified; the podcast is back in service. Thank you for your patience.

                                                The podcast version of our March 27, 2009 Revenge of the 80s Radio show is up and available at the bottom of this post.


                                                This week’s show features a track from Seona Dancing, the UK Alt-Pop duo that showcased the vocal prowess of Ricky Gervais, creator of the international hit TV series, The Office. The band only lasted for around a year, but was better than given credit for and might have become more prominent had they been developed a bit better. While new wave fans can listen to the music and argue that point, the breakup allowed Gervais to learn his true calling as a comic genius.
                                                We also showcased a 2008 track from Australian legends Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds and and deeper cuts from The Proclaimers, Kim Wilde and Wang Chung.

Among the special features is a track from “The Office” creator Ricky Gervais’ band, Seona Dancing.

                                                      Our 1 Year Anniversary Podcast Is Up

                                                        March 14, 2008 was the official launch date of Revenge of the 80s Radio. Since that initial broadcast, we not only played alternative classics from the 80s (give or take a few years for some tracks), we also interviewed some of the great artists of the era and showcased their new music and programs. We also added features to the news, information and podcasts on the Revenge of the 80s blog. There will be more exciting things happening with Revenge of the 80s in Year 2. Our first anniversary show is now available in a podcast at the bottom of this post.
                                                        I would like to thank you for listening to the radio broadcasts and podcasts as well as visiting our blog and making Revenge of the 80s one of the fastest-growing shows in the U.S.

                                                        From Voice of the Beehive's Official Site

                                                        To celebrate our first anniversary, we re-aired our first-ever interview on the program: a conversation with Tracey and Missy Belland of Voice of the Beehive. They are incredibly talented ladies who who grew up in California, moved to London and formed one of the most unique and memorable bands of the late 1980s. Our discussion leads off the second hour. They both are extremely nice and I was honored to have them on to help Christen the show; Tracey and Missy will always have a special place in the heart of Revenge of the 80s and, of course, mine.


                                                        These days, Tracey shares her talents with youngsters as a music teacher and Missy creates hand-crafted faeries, which are available at the Laguna Beach Sawdust Festival and through her website for Made In Heaven by Missy.

                                                        We also featured classic alternative tracks from artists including Altered Images, Devo, EBN-OZN and ABC.

                                                          It was one year ago when Revenge of the 80s aired on the radio for the first time. Since then the show, the website and podcast have grown thanks to all of you who listen to us and read our blog.
                                                          While next year we have some exciting things planned for Revenge of the 80s Radio and the B.C. Eagle Radio Network, we want to celebrate our first anniversary by re-airing the first interview we did fro the show: a conversation with Tracey and Missy Belland of Voice of the Beehive. It was fun talking with them and finding out more about the band that still has a strong following to this day. Our discussion leads off the second hour of the show.


                                                          Also, be sure to check out Missy’s website for Made In Heaven By Missy, where she hand-crafts fairy figurines and accessories. VOTB’s former bassist, Martin Brett, is now a part of I, Ludicrous in London and Daniel Woodgate is still with Madness.

                                                          In the first hour, we play classic alternative favorites from artists including Devo, Altered Images, ABC and The Clash.

                                                            The podcast for our March 7, 2009 Revenge of the 80s Radio Show is up and available at the bottom of this post. During the second hour, we feature a conversation with Adriana Kaegi, the original “Mama Coconut” of the influential band Kid Creole and the Coconuts. Adriana is a woman of many talents: singer, choreographer, designer, businessperson and internet pioneer are among her credits. She will soon release her solo album, TAG (from which we premiere a track) and she has recently completed a video documentary about her experiences with the band she helped establish entitled “Kid Creole and My Coconuts.”

                                                            kcioco

                                                            Adriana and August Darnell (Kid Creole) were married when he and Andy Hernandez (Coati Mundi) took her out for her 20th Birthday. While they might not have known that evening would have as much effect on music history as it did. Some of the things Adriana and I discuss include:

                                                            • The beginnings of Kid Creole and the Coconuts and the idea behind their remarkable stage show.
                                                            • The real story behind The Coconuts’ two albums apart from the rest of the band
                                                            • Adriana’s post-Coconuts career
                                                            • Dear Addy Productions and how the artist formerly known as “Mama Coconut” became later known as the “Queen of Stream”
                                                            • Her new album TAG
                                                            • …and the making of her recently-completed DVD Documentary: Kid Creole and My Coconuts

                                                            Adriana Kaegi has been the brains and backbone of several interesting projects both in music and as the President of Dear Addy Productions. After she and Cheryl Porier left Kid Creole and the Coconuts, they and friend Perri Lister formed Boomerang, a group with a lot of potential but, unfortunately, did not get enough attention from industry suits. Revenge of the 80s Radio has recently added a couple of Boomerang songs to the regular playlist as well as “Killer Bees” from The Coconuts, which features Adriana singing in French (she is multi-lingual, did I not mention that?). Kaegi was also involved in several other musical projects with a diverse array of artists such as U2 and Towa Tei.

                                                            It was not long after Kaegi discovered the internet that she learned to master its potential. She started up Dear Addy Productions and established herself as one of the first great internet streamers when she produced the Cyber Cabaret from New York City’s Knitting factory. That project won the “Best Live Webcast” award from Yahoo and C-Net in 1998. After surviving the dot-com crash, Adriana built Dear Addy into one of the world’s most successful internet businesses.
                                                            It was relatively recently when Adriana Kaegi decided to tell the story of Kid Creole and the Coconuts through a DVD documentary. She had the foresight to videotape several monumental and candid moments with the band and used that footage to put together Kid Creole and My Coconuts, which she plans to release later this year. With all that, Kaegi will soon distribute her solo album, TAG, onmajor digital media outlets. While we cover all of the above topics and more during the interview, Revenge of the 80s Radio will keep listeners and readers of this blog up to date on the status of those works.
                                                            Below is the trailer for Kid Creole and My Coconuts. More information on the documentary can be found on Adriana’s special website for the DVD:

                                                            We also played a classic Kid Creole and the Coconuts song, a cut from The Coconuts’ first EP, music from Boomerang and a selection from Adriana’s TAG.

                                                            Here are some essential Adriana Kaegi links:

                                                            During the first hour of the show, we played classic alternative tracks from artists including Strawberry Switchblade, The Alarm, R.E.M. and Mondo Rock.

                                                              Tonight’s Revenge of the 80s Radio will feature a conversation with the diversely-talented Adriana Kaegi, the original “Mama Coconut” and founding member of the legendary Kid Creole and the Coconuts. Adriana is releasing her new solo album, TAG, this month and has recently completed a documentary entitled Kid Creole and My Coconuts. Our interview leads off the second hour of tonight’s program.
                                                              Adriana and I discuss the idea and vision for Kid Creole and the Coconuts when she, August Darnell (the Kid) and Coati Mundi decided to form the band and why they were such a unique act (we might hear a funny backstage story as well). We also hear what really happened that led to the release of two Coconuts albums sans Kid Creole. In addition, I asked Adriana to talk about her brilliant work as a choreographer and costume designer.


                                                              We also delve into Adriana’s post-Coconuts career, which ranges from a band (Boomerang) formed with Perri Lister and fellow Coconut Cheryl Porier to several backing vocal projects to her exceptional and pioneering internet-based video and marketing business, Dear Addy Productions, which earned her the nickname “The Queen of Stream.”
                                                              2009 looks to be an even more exciting year for Adriana Kaegi as she continues to grow Dear Addy Productions and will soon release her TAG album and the documentary Kid Creole and My Coconuts. The trailer can be seen on the DVD’s website: kidcreoleandmycoconuts.com.
                                                              We will also play a track from Kid Creole and the Coconuts, a song from The Coconuts’ own first EP, an intriguing cover tune by Boomerang and a selection from Adriana’s TAG album.


                                                              During the first hour of the show, we will play classic alternative music from several artists of the era including The Alarm, Strawberry Switchblade, REM and Mondo Rock. The podcast version of the show will be up beginning this weekend.
