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 67: Duran Duran - Rio (1982) - Part 2


Never before has it taken Brian more than two days to edit an episode, but this week, while working on part two of the discussion of Duran Duran's classic 1982 album "Rio," it seems that he wasn't up to the challenge!  But you know, years from now, when Brian & Sarah are two of the most popular podcast hosts in the world and almost everyone over the age of 40 either wears a P.R.P. shirt or sports a sweet P.R.P. tattoo, no one will remember that this episode was four days late - they'll just be really happy that it's available for download!

Track-by-Track (Continued):

So this week, your hosts finish up their discussion of side one, getting the opportunity to talk about some fantastic music, including the immortal classic "Hungry Like the Wolf." 

Other topics are also touched upon such as:

  1. the incredibly disco-y first version of "My Own Way"
  2. what's a better look - a red headband or a red scarf?
  3. on which track does John Taylor's bass playing sound like a sea lion?
  4. who is a better matador: Highlander's Adrian Paul or Host Brian? (hint: his FB poll question seems to indicate it's Brian!)
  5. how many times did they have to release "Hungry Like the Wolf" before it finally became a US hit?
  6. and so much more!!
