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 112: Selections from Now That's What I Call Music Vol 1 (1983) - Part 2

It's September, and in the US, that means the summer season is wrapping up. And as the summer comes to a close, so does the Permanent Record Podcast's look back at the first edition of the iconic compilation series, Now That's What I Call Music.

Brian and Sarah are once again joined by friend of the show, Jackie Clary, who came up with the idea for this discussion. In this episode, the three hosts each choose a song from the second album to talk about. A lot of chart history and information is shared, and there's a Smash Hits review for each song as well. Of course there's also much discussion on the videos, in particular for Jackie's selection. But wait, there's more! Brian, Sarah, and Jackie also cover a range of topics including: authentic Doc Martens, legendary San Diego DJ Steve West; weird ways to hold a microphone; more Halloween costume ideas; and Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.

Disc 2 selections
Sarah's choice: "The Sun and the Rain" by Madness
Brian's choice: "Waterfront" by Simple Minds
Jackie's choice: "They Don't Know" by Tracey Ullman
