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 71: Summer of Sharing - Frankie Goes To Hollywood and ABBA

This summer, we asked our listeners to help us spread the word about the podcast and many of you did!  We really appreciated the assist, and we rewarded one lucky friend-of-the-show with his own personal episode! 

Our winner, the magnanimous Terry Kemp, reached out to us this past week and said that he was willing to share his special episode with the world!  Such a nice move on his part!

And so this is it!  Terry asked us to discuss Frankie Goes To Hollywood's "Relax" and ABBA's "The Winner Takes It All" - two very different, but two very excellent, pop singles.  We hope you will enjoy listening to Terry's podcast and maybe learn a thing or two about these bands, one famous and one infamous!

Please note that while the Frankie segment doesn't contain any profanity, it does discuss the lyrical content of the song, which is quite adult.  We don't say anything that couldn't be broadcast on the radio, but a few mature topics come up.
