In the early days of Revenge of the 80s Radio, I used to cover and review concerts somewhat regularly. During one at Jones Beach in 2009 which featured several artists of the 80s, I met backstage a rather talented percussionist, Lily Gonzalez, who was playing with ABC at the time. Since, she has worked with several classic alternative acts, most recently (and currently) with Tony Hadley. Lily has a new album out titled Sink or Swim; she will be our guest on this episode of Revenge of the 80s Radio.
