The Show: The One with Kajagoogoo

One Gen X’er’s piece of throwaway 80’s pop crap is another Gen Z’er’s twenty-twenties vaporwave classic – or so it would seem.

We were forced to re-evaluate and, yes, appreciate Kajagoogoo’s “Hang On Now” after the song featured in Sofie’s recent Bleep mix.

Sofie herself appears in today’s show along with a brand new track from John Carpenter, which seems a good reason as any to post a video of The Thing remade with the cast of Pingu.

And on with the show…

The Show: Heavy Metal Parking Lot

Brand new Shit & Shine with an accompanying video (see above) that uses footage from the 1986 documentary Heavy Metal Parking Lot (see below).

This, in turn, has inspired the Judas Priest links in today’s show. Who knew Rob Halford was so omnipresent on MTV promos and commercials in the mid 80’s (apart from 240 million Americans, that is)? TURBO POWER!

It’s a milestone in the careers of both Donny Osmond and Elton John as they both make their full Joint debuts, independently of each other but in the same unlikeliest of circumstances (hip-hop collaborations).

Plus The Sesh is back courtesy of Clara!.
