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 134: In Conversation with Kip Kubin, Tony Miracle, and Annette Strean of Venus Hum

In April 2020, Brian and Sarah branched out into new territory by publishing their first-ever interview. The kind soul who agreed to talk with them (for several hours, as it turned out!) was none other than Tony Miracle, known by many for being one-third of the band Venus Hum. It was a delightful conversation covering a wide variety of musical topics, and a good time was had by all.

Now, in 2021, Brian and Sarah are delighted to present a conversation with all three members of Venus Hum: Kip Kubin, Annette Strean, and of course, Tony Miracle. And what's even more exciting is that there's a brand-new Venus Hum album to discuss!

First, however, the hosts have a little catching up to do with Kip and Annette. They learned a lot about Tony's musical background and history in last year's talk, so they wanted to hear Kip and Annette's stories too. They find out how everyone met and how the band came together, and the trio talk about the albums, videos, tours, and promotional appearances over the years.

Then the spotlight is put on the absolutely marvelous new album from Venus Hum, Kindness Rages On. Brian and Sarah are thrilled to have the chance to tell Kip, Annette, and Tony how much they love the album, and the trio graciously answers questions about the making of the album and some of the individual tracks.

If you're a fan of Venus Hum, or if you don't know Venus Hum yet but are a fan of superbly-crafted  electronic music with amazingly emotive vocals and thought-provoking lyrics,  you'll definitely want to listen to this conversation-- and then as soon as you're done, head over to or to pick up Kindness Rages On.
