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 60:  Summer 2018 Mix Tape, Part Two - Blancmange, Hipsway, Breathe, Danny Elfman


As the official start of Summer 2018 inches ever closer, there's important work to be done-- finishing the Summer Mix Tape! It's a job for none other than the Fantastic Four: Brian, Sarah, Colby Zell, and "The Hustle" podcast host, Jon Lamoreaux! (We'll leave it up to you do to decide which host matches which member of Marvel's First Family, True-believers!)

Side One of the tape was definitely a mix of artists and song types. Side Two is no different, with even the order of the selections being mixed up. There's also a wide variety of topics discussed, such as 80s white boy dancing, naughty paintings, living off the grid, desserts, movie soundtracks, record label drama, and guys in goatskin pants. Also, for the second week in a row, the group talks about Vince Clarke (what does he have to do with Side Two?)  Man, that guy is EVERYWHERE!
