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 159: In Conversation with Rob Rowe and Von Hertzog (VH x RR) - New Music: "When Morning Comes"

It's always great to have friends swing by the BlueZone Studio, but when they bring BRAND NEW MUSIC with them for us to sample and share with you, it's even better!!

Brian & Sarah welcome back VH x RR (aka Rob Rowe and Von Hertzog) on the eve of the release of their latest single, "When Morning Comes."

"WMC" is already one of our favorite tracks from the duo, and it was a blast to get all the details on the song from its creators.  It's a bit of an evolution from the sound we heard on their last EP, "On the Shoulders of Giants", but it's a very natural evolution and the track sits comfortably alongside the best of VH x RR's previous work.

Over the course of the discussion, other important topics are covered, including:

  • Updates on Rob and Von's respective solo projects
  • What do Rob and Von think of "Memento Mori" and what influence did Depeche Mode have on Cause & Effect?
  • Who's reading Rick Rubin's new book and what's it all about?
  • Brian Belknap: Is he a vampire??

Many thanks to VH x RR for giving us the opportunity to premiere this wonderful new track!  You can get yourself a copy starting Friday June 30th at
