Episode #199 - True One Hit Wonders and The Greatness You Missed

Welcome to March, avid listeners! Springtime here in the states, a time of awakening and renewal as winter attempts to hold areas in her icy grip to no avail. With that in mind, we're going to visit those true one hit wonders from the 80's. While some of these bands may have had a bit of a chart showing in their home countries after a smash hit, overall they never got past the winter of their chart success. It's a shame, because these bands still had a lot to offer, which we'll share in this podcast.
