Tonight on Revenge of the 80s, we talk with Phil Oakey of The Human League, who are gearing up for the Regeneration Tour, which begins on August 1st.

Phil had been with the band since his old buddy Martyn Ware asked him to join his band with Ian Craig Marsh, formerly known as “The Future” in the late 70s. After Marsh and Ware departed to form Heaven 17, Oakey put together a new Human League in 1980. The lineup included singers Joanne Catherll and Susan Ann Sulley, who remain with Oakey in the band today.

The Regeneration Tour, which runs through August in North America, also includes ABC, Belinda Carlisle, A Flock of Seagills, Dead or Alive and Naked Eyes. Dates and ticket information can be found on the Regeneration Tour website.

Also featured on tonight’s show will be music from artists including Kim Wilde, The Time Bandits, Echo and the Bunnymen and Voice of the Beehive.

Revenge of the 80s Radio airs live every Friday night 7-9pm on Q99.1FM in the Hudson Valley, NY and on; Wednesdays 12noon Melbourne, Australia time on 87.6FM “Radio 80s” in Korumburra, AUS and our podcast will be available on Saturday.
