Interactive 80s

Lou MakeupEditWe had a great night on Andy Fea’s Interactive 80s Radio Show on Beverley FM last week. Andy asked me to pick 30 1980’s tracks to reminisce and bop along to.  We chatted about band life, Red Guitars, Planet Wilson, being on the road and recording in the studio back then.
