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 22: Howard Jones - Dream Into Action (1985) Part 2

Last week, our two hosts, Brian and Sarah, were so long-winded in their discussion of this classic album's history and their 30-year love affair with it that they only managed to get through the first two tracks before realizing that the show was running too long.  This week, they get things back on track by finishing up the remaining four songs on side one and then briefly discussing the topic of Howard Jones' restaurant, something which came up on Facebook this past week.

Part 3: Track by Track

B&S talk about the rest of side one and a pair of videos.  Also, Brian declares one of these songs to be more disturbing than anything by "dark" bands like Depeche Mode and The Cure.   Sarah calls out a declaration of strength for being weak.
