Terrific

Great stuff and really interesting. I’m a 50 y/o US fan and grew up on True Colors and Time & Tide. I gradually purchased (or now stream) most of their collection. One of my Top 10 bands along with the likes of Boomtown Rats and Hoodoo Gurus who also were not as successful in my country as they should have been. My 18 year old daughter also likes them based on almost 2 decades of play in the minivan. Found this when searching for a streaming source for Rootin Tutin Luton streaming source to complete my listening collection (both linked on Neilfnn.com. Wish some of this live and other content were available to purchase or live somewhere (only half of what I own on LP, cassette, and CD is available for streaming here).

So interesting!

I Hooked up the old VCR and watched my Enz video collection tonight and felt like I was watching it in a different light after listening to this.

If You Like Music, Listen to This!

This radio-documentary is a must-listen to all Frenz and rock music lovers of any sort. There are interviews from band members, managers, industry executives; there are nervous breakdowns, triumphs, and tantrums. Above all, there are previously unbroadcasted demos and live recordings which will blow you away. If I could give this podcast 100 stars, I would. Great job by Radio NZ!
