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 72: "Bohemian Rhapsody" movie and Queen - "Thank God It's Christmas" (1984)

Another holiday season is upon us, and our hosts have found themselves snowed under (pun intended) with festive preparations. So instead of discussing the Queen album "The Works" (which will now be done in the new year), they're offering up something they've never done before-- a movie discussion! No, Sarah hasn't finally given in to Brian doing an entire James Bond podcast; the movie in question is the recently released Queen/Freddie Mercury biopic, "Bohemian Rhapsody."


You may know by now that Brian and Sarah are huge Queen fans and were therefore anxiously awaiting the release of this movie. And now that they've seen it several times(!), they decided to share their thoughts on it with each other-- and you!


However, in keeping with the theme of the show, Brian and Sarah do also discuss a record -- Queen's 1984 Christmas single, "Thank God It's Christmas." They share the usual information about the release, the chart position, the making of, and lots of other fun tidbits and trivia.


Be sure to listen to the end, though, to learn about this year's holiday giveaway! This year, Brian and Sarah hope to provide TWO lucky listeners with music-related prizes!

Hear the festive songs we discuss:

Queen - Thank God It's Christmas

Anita Dobson (with Brian May & John Deacon) - I Dream of Christmas
