There is an average of over 500 people who can't get the podcast because it is so popular it exceeds the amount of bandwidth allowed under the free account. Because of this I've suggested in a previous post that everyone move over to my blog for similar music. But it seems everyone is STILL coming here. So here's the deal. The donate via paypal option is on the right of the page in the sidebar. When I get enough donations to cover a month's worth of premium membership, I'll re-activate this podcast. It will be on a month by month basis. If I don't have the donations to cover it for one month, then that month will revert to the limited bandwidth and you might not be able to get it. So if you guys want it back, please donate!

Forgotten 80's Vol 46: RPM- The Best Band You've Never Heard!
June 15, 2008 06:01 AM PDT

Why this group didn't hit it big in the 80's with this LP, "Phonongenic", I'll never know. The track "Man Overboard" should've been a huge hit, but basically no one ever heard it.

Their record company failed to promote them properly, and they fell through the cracks.

Band member Jimmy Lee Sloas went on to become a sought after studio bassist/producers, and worked with many artists in the country/rock/ and Christian industries, even forming his own band and releasing a CD. (Dogs Of Peace)

The tracks featured are:

01- Man Overboard
02- Piece Of Glass
03- The Curtain's Gonna Fall
04- Head In The Sand

Disregarded as "one hit wonders", Men Without Hats actually had some great new wave material up their sleeves as evidenced in this podcast.

These songs were taken from a "live" performance during the band's peak.

The songs are:
01- Heaven
02- I Got The Message
03- Editions Of You
04- Safety Dance

Wang Chung's first album was recorded under the name "Huang Chung". They changed the spelling on subsequent albums.

Their first album is hard to find on cd, but it's worth it if you can grab it. Some nice forgotten gems from the 80's.

The songs included are:
01- China
02- Chinese Girls
03- Hold Back The Tears
04- Dancing

A truly FORGOTTEN powerpop/rock gem from the 80's. I can't even find what this guy's up to now. It's such a common name, searching the net is fruitless! If you have any idea what he's up to now, send me an e-mail.

This is a transfer from vinyl, not available on CD.

The songs on this podcast are:

01- Two Hearts On The Loose
02- Underdog
03- If I Was A Fool

Forgotten 80's Volume 42- Before They Were The Cars..

Before they were the Cars, they were called Cap''n Swing. I've unearthed a few demos they recorded under that name. I'm just guessing at the titles! You can hear the beginnings of that signature Cars sound in these recordings.

01- Strawberry Moonlight
02- Come Back Down
03- Goes On Sleeping
04- Twilight Superman
