Permanent Record Podcast

Brian and Sarah are your hosts for this look back at albums from the New Wave and Classic Rock genres-- albums which have earned a permanent spot in their record collection. The hosts start the discussion with a history of the album, followed by their personal history with it. Over the course of two episodes, they do a track-by-track review of the album and the videos that accompany the singles. They conclude by each giving the album a final review and rating of zero to five record adapters. Join Brian and Sarah in this fun look back at the hits-- along with some misses-- of the 70s and 80s!

Episode 20: The 45 Face Off!!

It was a very busy weekend for Brian and Sarah and although they weren't able to record a new episode, they did discover a new record shop near their house!  Their first visit resulted in them buying a small stack of 80's 7" singles, or as we more often refer to them, 45's!

The hosts, together with their visiting niece Grace, select a few of the 45s to face off in a battle royal, with Brian and Sarah making a case for each record and Grace passing judgment on which fighter moves on to the next level.

Here are the battles we decide for you:

Round 1: Tears For Fears "Everybody Wants To Rule The World" VS Boys Don't Cry "Who The Am Dam Do You Think You Am"

Round 2: The Church "Under The Milky Way" VS Robbie Nevil "Dominoes"

Round 3: George Michael "Faith" VS Erasure "Chains Of Love"

Round 4: Depeche Mode "Everything Counts (Live)" VS New Order "Blue Monday 1988"

Now the conflict moves onto our Facebook page where we ask you to pick the winners of the next 2 rounds!  Visit us at to cast your vote! 

Thanks for listening!  See you next week with a full episode featuring a look back at a classic 80's New Wave album!
