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 50: Depeche Mode - Some Great B-Sides

Brian and Sarah are excited (and maybe a little surprised, as well!) to be at the fifty-episode milestone of the Permanent Record Podcast. To celebrate, they decide to do something different for this show. It's not quite "flipping the script," though; it's simply flipping some records to talk about some of their favorite Depeche Mode B-sides.

Each host chooses three B-sides to talk about, and as they take turns discussing each selection, it works out that the songs are just about in chronological order as well.

The fact that the songs are B-sides doesn't stop our intrepid hosts from finding information to talk about with each track. Brian and Sarah discuss live performances of the B-sides, remixed versions, and in the case of one B-side, chart position! Brian shares an interesting remix story which completely delights Sarah, and both of them reminisce about their college days and how Depeche Mode was a big part of those memories. And, once again, we find Brian talking about soda! (What is it about podcasting that seems to makes him so thirsty, anyway?)
