The Podcast For Our 1/16 Show Is Up

Written by on January 17, 2009

The podcast for this week’s Revenge of the 80s Radio show is up and available at the bottom of this post.

The second hour is dedicated to classic alternative dance music with tracks from several artists of the era including Alphaville, Amazulu, Strawberry Switchblade, Blancmange and Depeche Mode.

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:

The first hour also included tracks from INXS, The Clash and Icicle Works.

    Thanks for the true story on that, Adriana. I always thought it was Darnell who produced that one… I had sources too. I have corrected it in the post.
