For a while in the late 70's/early 80's Greg Kihn
seemed like he might be one of the saviors of powerpop. It didn't quite work out that way, but this is still a fairly interesting interview from 1985.
(He's also a better-than-average novelist, and apparently a pretty decent person, as well).
[Is that Andy Griffith doing the AT&T commercial?]
Much like the Beach Boys version of this show previously posted
, this disc came into my possession during my brief early 90's sales gig at Blount
County's 1470 WMDR
which was at that time running an easy listening format but which had
previously been top-40 as "The Music Doctor". The top-40 format had
replaced an earlier easy listening format when the station dropped its
original call letters of WEAG
(on which we listened to the Jerry Collins Show every morning on the
way to school in the 70's in my Dad's '72 Impala with the one oval
speaker in the dash).
