The podcast version of this week’s Revenge of the 80s Radio show is up and available at the bottom of this post. The second hour features a conversation with Martha Davis of The Motels — the full, uncut version (the interview previously had to be edited to fit the live radio time constraints). Davis’ voice remains one of the most unique and recognizable in music history although she, surprisingly, never took formal lessons as a young woman.

During the first hour, we showcased a lost classic from the 1980s: “Did You Have To Love Me Like You Did?” by The Coconuts — the ladies who performed with Kid Creole: Cheryl Poirier, Adriana Kaegi and Taryn Hagey. The “Kid” (August Darnell) produced an album for them. Fellow bandsman Coati Mundi also had one around the same time that was not produced by Mr. Creole (thanks to Coconut Adriana Kaegi for the information). The Coconuts EP did not get the radio attention it probably deserved and subsequently, was not a hefty commercial success. The video for “Did You…” interestingly was played repeatedly on HBO’s early-to-mid-80s show Video Jukebox:
Tonight’s Revenge of the 80s Radio Show will dedicate its second hour to classic alternative dance music with tracks from artists including Yaz, Alphaville, Amazulu, Depeche Mode, Erasure and Blancmange.

The podcast for this week’s Revenge of the 80s Radio show, featuring an interview with Will Powers, is up and available at the bottom of this post. Will is actually Lynn Goldsmith, the brilliant world-class photographer and director who brought us the album Dancing for Mental Health, which is currently available on CD Baby.
Goldsmith made state-of-the-art videos for three singles: “Adventures in Success,” “Smile,” and “Kissing With Confidence.” The latter was a U.K. chart hit featuring Carly Simon on lead vocals. We talk about Will Powers’ origins, evolution and the future of the Will Powers Institute. Goldsmith found the character to be a truly inspirational one for many as it took off on its own international Adventure in Success.
For the Will Powers project, Goldsmith had help from several friends in the music industry who wanted to be a part of it including Simon, Todd Rundgren, Nile Rodgers, Tom Bailey and Steve Winwood. Also, during the interview, Lynn Goldsmith and I talk about:
- How she decided to present the Will Powers idea at a session in NYC
- The technology behind the Will Powers videos
- Will Powers philosophies and inspirational affirmations
- Why Goldsmith used a vocoder for the Will Powers voice instead of her natural one
- Plans for the future of Will Powers and the Will Powers Institute
- More on her photography and upcoming shows and exhibits includingr Lynn’s “Rock and Roll” exhibit at the Jenkins Johnson Gallery, in Manhattan October 2-November 25.
The interview with Will Powers kicks off the second hour of the show. We also feature music from several other artists including The Time Bandits, Kate Bush, Squeeze and Blancmange.
