In the 1980s, Cosby ruled the airwaves and Reagan won the Cold War. Nashville had its share of patterned sweaters and Republicans, but this week the Scenecast brings you, fearless reader, the best in '80sNashville music created outside the gates of Music Row. To complement this week's cover story, Host Collin Wade Monk takes a big shovel and digs up the day-glo and leather jacket remains of undead treasures from The White Animals, The Questionnaires, Will and The Bushmen, Bill Lloyd, Government Cheese, The Shakers, The Young Nashvillians, Raging Fire, Cloverbottom, Practical Stylists, Jet Black Factory, In Pursuit, The Dusters, Walk The West, The Enemy, Webb Wilder, and Jason & The Scorchers. Special thanks to Tom Wood and Rev. Keith A Gordon for help with this week's Scenecast....Spread The Love.
The Scenecast is in MPEG-4 format to take advantage of chapter and image technology that .m4a files support. Microsoft's Windows Media Player doesn't support these files by default, though users can download and install Windows Media Player additions so that it will.
As an alternative to updating Windows Media Player, a .mp3 version of the Scenecast is available above. And, of course, Apple's iTunes supports .m4a files for both Windows and Macintosh platforms.
