    And… we are back! After fourteen months of no Deep Cuts and Superficial Wounds, the podcast is back with ninety minutes of 80s pop gems for you. We will not be returning to a week-to-week schedule, but my life is finally arranged in a way that I can afford to sort though music and start putting new episodes together. Let’s rock.
    Listen to the Italoween episode of Different Head that finally got me to work on new episodes again. But also listen to the funky Christmas city pop episode of Different Head too. Just listen to Different Head, in general.
    Also, if you're so inclined, have a look at Thrilling Tales of Old Video Games.

Repeatable

It doesn’t matter that there are long gaps between episodes. Even if there is never a new episode, you can relisten to the existing episodes over and over. The Halloween episodes are my favorite.

Great Musical Selection!

If you’re a fan of 80’s synth (and of not why?) you’re in the right place.

Awesome playlist

Drew your one of (top two) podcasters in my library. I found this about a week ago and have been telling all my friends to check it out.
