The Wavelength
Monday March 27th, 2017 with Joe Reilly
A Bit of Electro New Wave-ish Stuff for a Monday

Don't miss the following shows: Pick A Piper performing at House of Targ on April 6. Operators performing at Zaphod Beeblebrox on Thursday, March 30. We spin a couple of songs from the latest album by Operators and revisit an interview with Dan Boeckner of the band. We talk about the influence of late 70s and early 80s new wave music - notably Ultravox. Dan prefers the John Foxx version of Ultravox so we also spin some music by Ultravox. (Dan does admit that the song Vienna is a pop gem!)
