Show Notes:

01:00 – Intro
07:30 – Episode start

To kick things off, we take a trip down memory lane – actually we take Richmond Road past Victory Boulevard – and Sal shares stories along the way about his groovy musical upbringing, delivering pizza to Wu-Tang Clan, and the meticulous dedication to preparing fresh playlists each night to set the mood of the joint while bartending.

Turning our attention to Touch, Sal and Josh both agree Annie Lennox is the female David Bowie, pushing the edges of the New Wave genre, and doubling down on experimentation in Eurythmics’ third album with the freedom enabled by the band’s breakout worldwide hit Sweet Dreams. This music represents the early 80’s. It paves the way for video games and the next generation of androgynous superstars.
