Richard SimmonsBack in the 1980s, workout albums and videos hit a fever pitch, buoyed by the massive success of Jane Fonda’s Workout.  In the midst of the repackaging of rock and disco hits with barked workout instruction overlayed, Richard Simmons took a different tack.  He put out a legitimate pop/rock record with songs he wrote himself!  Reach is his magnum opus, and lucky listeners to this podcast get to hear the 1982 masterpiece in its raw and uncut glory.  Time to get in shape, fellow music geeks!

Maiden AustraliaThis week the GE Show takes you completely down under with an exploration of some memorable yet mostly forgotten New Wave sounds from Aussie bands from 30+ years back in time.  Re-hear the sounds of SPLIT ENZ, MIDNIGHT OIL, HUNTERS AND COLLECTORS, HOODOO GURUS, MENTAL AS ANYTHING, and SKYHOOKS amongst many others, and ponder on how the harsh climate and Aboriginal atrocities made for some unusual and often compelling music.  Time to hit the land of Oz, fellow music geeks!
