The podcast edit for our 9/16/11 Revenge of the 80s Radio show is up and available at the bottom of this post. This week, hor 2 features a conversation with August Darnell, better know to his fans as Kid Creole (Kid Creole and the Coconuts). Darnell recently released his new album, I Wake Up Screaming.
During the interview, Darnell and I discuss:

- Darnell’s two musicals.
In hour 1, we highlight a selection from Louise Robey‘s long-awaited Music Anthology Part 1 (1979-2009), which she released on September 15.
We also play classic tracks by Hazel O’Connor, INXS, David Bowie, XTC, Pseudo Echo and more of your favorite classic alternative artists.
