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.
The festival is one of the world’s biggest music events and features several music genres and acts form all over the world.
People wishing to attend the SXSW festivities can find ticket information on the event’s official website.
