Y2K - Songs from the Year 2000, Part 4

3/25/2020
Did Englebert Humperdinck scare you? Try to be brave. You don't want anyone to think you're Yellow. 1999 is long gone, and here we are two decades after the meltdown that never happened. It's amazing to think these tunes are two decades old, and you'll not only have some good memories but realize that some of these performers are still going strong today. Some were just getting started! Join us as we look back at the time when all the computers *didn't* crash, and the world survived.

Blues-Rock Influence (part 4) - The Limey & the Yank Season 4 Episode 8

2/26/2020
In the end, we give you Big Joe Turner, and you could be forgiven if he made you think of Chicken Run. Janis Joplin shows us how the 1960s went through another wave of Blues with Big Brother, the Holding Company, Big Mama Thornton, and a Ball and Chain. T. Bone Walker wins our award hands-down for 'most goth / metal name of all'. Shorten it to "Bone Walker" and it sounds like someone you'd meet in Game of Thrones!

Blues-Rock Influence (part 3) - The Limey & the Yank Season 4 Episode 7

2/19/2020
Arthur Gunter and Elvis both want to play House. Not with each other, of course. And also not with that TV doctor (would that be "playing 'Doctor' " instead? Someone ask Hugh Laurie!). We get to Jeff Beck, walk through early and late years for B.B. King, and even spend some time with the Ganster of Love himself.

One-Hit Wonders (part 4): the Limey & the Yank Season 4 Episode 4

1/22/2020
Murray Head thoughtfully pointed out that One Night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble, but he'd never heard what the New Vaudeville Players had to say about Winchester Cathedral. I'm Too Sexy for Kung Fu Fighting when I'm Putting on the Ritz, so you'd be Crazy to Take on Me. Join us and see why it's Cruel to be Kind!

One-Hit Wonders (part 3): the Limey & the Yank Season 4 Episode 3

1/15/2020
Whether it's Nena and Falco getting multi-lingual or just Telly Savalas speaking the language of love, it was one hit and then they were gone. You feel that Heartbeat when you're Hooked on a Feeling and it's got you on your knees, but you've got to Respect Yourself. It's what Bruce would do. Not THAT Bruce. Not "The Boss", Bruce. The Willis Bruce. "Whatcha talkin' about, Willis?"

One-Hit Wonders (part 2): the Limey & the Yank Season 4 Episode 2

1/8/2020
When Anita Ward, you can Ring My Bell! We're not quite clear on what made Dexy's Midnight Runners want to be out jogging so late, but we do think a lot of these one-hit wonders had The Knack for Playing that Funky Music. Float on and see the surprise hit from a woman mostly known for her great comedy legacy (but the one-hit isn't actually funny...isn't that funny?).

One-Hit Wonders: the Limey & the Yank Season 4 Episode 1

1/1/2020
From the past through today and into the future, there will always be those artists who for one moment capture the spotlight...and then never repeat that same magic again. Join us as we peer into the year 2525, ponder whether stars wander, and go Tubthumping for the Macarena. It's my life and I'll spend it thinking of Grandad and his sweet tooth. Sugar, sugar, and one-hit sweetness!

12/12/2019
Another Freaky Friday as we end the year and our third season together: Steve the Limey is now The Yank! And that makes Blake the Yank stuck with the title of "Sir Blake the Limey" - a terrible turnabout for all! Join us for some fun and great musical memories as we take on the great debate: from the USA to the UK, who *really* knows who's who? And...who *really* knows how to rock?
