Our 2-Year Anniversary Show Podcast Edit Is Up
Written by admin on March 13, 2010
Our 3/12 Revenge of the 80s Radio show’s podcast edit is up and available at the end of this post. This week, we celebrate our 2-year anniversary by playing our first-ever interview on the show: a conversation with Tracey and Missy Belland of Voice of the Beehive, which leads off the second hour. We also feature new music from Gorevette and Louise Robey. In addition, we honor Marc Moreland on the eighth anniversary of his passing with a double-shot of Wall of Voodoo music showcasing him on guitar.
I want to thank all of you for your support, for listening to the show and for visiting our website/blog.
Voice of the Beehive will always have a special place on Revenge of the 80s and in my heart because Tracey and Missy were nice enough to be my first guest Also, Melissa offered me a lot of encouragement when I discussed the idea with her after an interview we did together on a network business show for which I fill in as a host. I will always be grateful to them for helping launch this program. Tracey continues to write while she teaches music to children in Laguna Beach. Missy hand-crafts fairies and fairy accessories with her business, Made In Heaven by Missy. She has a regular booth at the annual Laguna Beach Sawdust Festival. She is also a mom of two years to her daughter, Glory.
New music for this week’s show comes from Gorevette and Louise Robey. Gorveette is getting ready for their first Eastern US and Japan tours since Nikki Corvette and Amy Gore started the band. Robey is currently working on a number of projects, including a music anthology box CD set.
Despite the celebratory occasion, we include a tribute to Marc Moreland, guitarist and founder of Wall of Voodoo. Moreland passed on eight years ago this week. He is remembered by fans for his distinct southwestern Americana-style triplet-centric sound, his own homages to great American songwriters and his imaginative approach to music. We play a Wall of Voodoo double-shot featuring Moreland’s guitar-playing during the first hour.
We also spun classic alternative cuts from artists including They Might Be Giants, Julian Cope, A-ha, The Little Girls and Missing Persons. Dale Bozzio and Missing Persons will be at BB King’s Bar & Grill in NYC on March 15th with Tommy Tutone and Gene Loves Jezebel. Revenge of the 80s’ ticket giveaway contest for this show is here.
Once again, thank you for your support, for listening and for your continued readership.
