Listen to our 5 favorite Stuck in the '80s podcast interviews

March

Martha Quinn. Brian Johnson. Maybe even Howard Jones. Stuck in the '80s fans have a lot of opinions on which was the best interview we've done in nearly eight years of Stuck in the '80s. With Easter upon us and half the country covered in snow, maybe the best way to celebrate the holiday is safely indoors with a pair of ear buds and a little podcasting history.

In no particular order, here are my favorite Stuck in the '80s podcast interviews.

BRIAN JOHNSON: The AC/DC frontman was doing a benefit concert in Clearwater, which gave us the rare chance to talk to a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer. His story about how he wrote Hells Bells still gives me chills. Listen again.

MARTHA QUINN: It still amazes me that Martha and I e-mail back and forth in the wake of this amazing conversation. Martha was promoting an '80s trivia game, giving us the opening for an interview. She's every bit as lovable as she was when we first saw her on MTV. Listen again.

HOWARD JONES: I love talking to artists were performed at Live Aid, and Howard was happy to share his memories of that epic day. Later, after he played a local show in Tampa Bay, I had a chance to meet him again backstage. I should have brought my Live Aid poster for him to sigh. Listen again.

KENNY LOGGINS: People forget about this interview, but Kenny really impressed me. He sang even! And he had some great trivia about the songs he wrong. Maybe our first homerun interview. Listen again.

STEVE PERRY: You knew I wouldn't leave this one off the list. The great white buffalo of interviews. It took me forever to edit this interview, mainly because I didn't want it to end. His reaction to my Oh Sherrie question still gives me goosebumps. Listen again.
