It’s an 80s Thing #1 – The New Romantics & Alliterative Artists

After providing data for hundreds of Soundwaves 10@10 episodes, Intern Steve steps into the spotlight with a deep dive into All Things 80s! Almost every episode will be two parts … each half a distinctly different subject from its counterpart … seemingly unrelated pop culture and music topics that (more often than not) will have a connection!

Today we’ll hear the song that Rolling Stone named as the breakthrough song of the second British Invasion, the singer who approached the manager of the Sex Pistols to manage his band and he agreed, only Malcolm McLaren took everyone in the band EXCEPT the singer . . . ouch! And we’ll get a grammar lesson on alliteration . . . you’ll hear all of that and more in this edition of IA8T . . .
