80s fans' preferred stocking stuffer



What to buy an 80s fan -- a Rubik's Cube? A nice Depeche Mode CD? No, here is this year's no-brainer item: the newly released 2-disc DVD of "Duran Duran Live in London." Sweet. Recorded live at Wembley Stadium, it has 20 songs and comes with a CD of 10 songs (also recorded at the show) and 3-D glasses. And yes, all their greatest hits make it into the show.

Time will tell if this tops my all-time favorite concert film -- Sing Blue Silver, which chronicled the band's "Seven and the Ragged Tiger" tour of the U.S. back in 1983-4. I missed out on their show that year at the Lakeland Civic Center, which was at the time the only big concert venue in Tampa Bay (and no one really considers Lakeland part of Tampa Bay). So I'm constantly knocking on Gina's door and borrowing her DVD of that film.

And yeah, I know, we haven't done a Duran Duran podcast yet. I'm not sure what we're waiting for. That's a hefty topic for a single podcast. Give us suggestions on how to break them down and we'll see what we can do. In the meantime, I'm off to the store to hunt down this DVD.
