Heat of the moment? It's Asia



This week's topic on the Stuck in the 80s podcast -- Asia! The definitive rock group from the early 80s was bound to pop up on our show sooner or later. Tune in this week for such tidbits as:

-- Why did the band choose the name Asia?
-- The anthology of the first supergroup.
-- The hidden track on the Alpha album.
-- Rumors of a 25th anniversary tour with the original lineup.
-- Why do all their album names begin with the letter A? (Up until the last few, of course. What happened? Run out of words?)
-- John Wetton vs. Greg Lake.
-- And the really really sad story of how Steve stayed up all night to tape "Asia in Asia" on MTV only to tape over it the following week.

Feel free to drop us a comment on why you love or hate the band, your favorite Asia tunes and any other fun trivia.

Also this week, we reveal the answer and winner to the Nearly Impossible Name That 80s Tune challenge. Yeah, the 5 "heys" one.
