Duran Duran is online

28

July

Our special one-year anniversary podcast show featuring Duran Duran is now online. Click here to listen, or click here to subscribe to the whole series for free on iTunes.

Some highlights of this week's show:

  • Pop music critic Sean Daly tells the story of meeting and interviewing the band -- twice -- over the years and shares his secret to getting great quotes from Simon Le Bon, Nick Rhodes and John Taylor.
  • Andy Wickett, Duran Duran's lead singer before Simon, joins the podcast from England to share the story of how the band formed. (Andy's website)
  • Co-host Cathy confesses to stalking the band at the Miami airport, which is why she still can't fly commercially to this day. (No, not really, but imagine Cathy's face when she read that.)
  • Steve again can't get past not being allowed to see Duran Duran in concert back in 1984. Find out why his mom told him no. (And now imagine the look of horror on my mom's face as she read that!)

Plus, we have a TON of special fan greetings from around the world and more music that you can imagine. All this is our present to our fans and listeners for giving us support and encouragement this past year. We love you.

What's to come in the next year? Stay tuned for our MTV episode. And coming soon: episodes on "The Red Scare," The Clash, Sci-Fi in the 80s, a couple John Hughes masterpieces and more.
