This week’s show features a conversation with Josie Cotton, who became the world’s new wave sweetheart when she performed (already an international hit) “Johnny Are You Queer” in the movie Valley Girl.
Tonight’s Revenge of the 80s Radio show will feature a conversation with Josie Cotton. Most 80s fans remember Cotton for her performance of “Johnny, Are You Queer?” on Valley Girl. While it was an international hit, controversy over the song wound up depriving us at the time of the musical talents of this fine songwriter.
This is a somewhat regular series of posts highlighting 80s highlights on other great blogs and web publications:
Lux Interior, co-founder of The Cramps died yesterday due to an existing heart condition. He was 62.
Interior, born Erick Lee Purhiser, with his wife and musical partner, Poison Ivy, introduced the Psychobilly sound to the New York music scene in the mid-70s, combining elements of alternative 50s rockabilly, early new wave, punk, roots rock and b-movie soundtrack Americana.
