You’d better stop this playing on my mind

Michael Fortunati aka Pierre Michel Nigro

Michael Fortunati aka Pierre Michel Nigro

It started as an earworm. That 1987 Kylie Minogue hit “I Heard A Rumour”. Except it wasn’t. It was Bananarama. So down the rabbit hole we went to listen to Bananarama hits and that’s how we stumbled across Michael Fortunati and his 1986 hit “Give Me Up”.

WHY. DID. WE. NOT. KNOW. ABOUT. THIS?
It’s Italo Disco Euro Beat keytar gold.
You can even smell the Kouros.

The Show: Right-winging, bitter-clinging, proud clingers

OMG. Coco Solid and Disasteradio stole Ladyhawke’s convertible and went on an electropop bender!!!

It’s funny. When we meet our listeners in person the dreaded “How do you prepare for the show?” question* usually arises. In the interests of transparency this Emmanuelle video is a pretty accurate representation of our pre-show rituals…

* It’s not really a dreaded question.
