Reliving my misspent youth!

I found y’all 2 weeks ago. This was my first ep and I’ve now gone back to the start and I’m up to Aug 80. Such a great show! Instantly accessible and your laid back style is exactly what my daily commute needs.

Oof

Good concept but cringe. This one is for friends and family only. And by friends, I mean that person you know who listened to the radio growing up but only paid attention to their favorites, doesn’t know how to use Wikipedia and somehow you don’t find annoying to listen to.

Really interesting and seems to improve over time

I have listened to six full episodes so far, out of sequence, and I REALLY am enjoying this podcast. My one criticism, which is pretty consistent with other 80s podcasts, is that the music taste is overall pretty white-centric. At the start of the series, just going by the show notes, it took them five months to review their first album by a black artist (Diana Ross in May 80). That seems to improve a little as the podcast picks up momentum, but something like the Sugarhill Gang in February 1980 is something I wish they had noticed for its historical value as an early rap album (debatably the first one). Grace Jones’s Warm Leatherette would have been interesting to hear a review of (that sounds incredibly niche, but only to someone who doesn’t recognize her as a pioneer), and S.O.S. by the SOS Band in June 1980 launched the careers of Terry Lewis and Jimmy Jam Harris as hit producers. They have a rationale for what albums they review, but it might be helpful to expand the “stuff we like” category as a way to redress the biases of the gatekeepers that they are leaning on for their picks. Maybe “stuff people should know about” would be a more useful way to think of it. The hosts’ revelation that they confuse Diana Ross and Donna “Summers” told me more than I wanted to know about their awareness of R
