    Totally 80s Tour, Part 3 – Limahl

    Final part of the backstage antics during the Totally 80s tour across Australia last winter. Limahl has a drink and tells us what it was like working with Georgio Moroder to produce the song Never Ending Story.

    In fact let’s all have a few drinks and meet everyone backstage.

    In this show you will hear from:

    Paul Lekarkis (just back from shopping)
    Dave Schulz, Chris Olivias, Terri Nunn of Berlin (they have sock envy)
    Ivan Doroschuk (very elusive)
    Dave Sterry Real Life (he knows where the bodies are buried)
    Johnno Smallman (artist liaison, I’ll let him explain it)
    Katrina of The Waves (poodle and pub talk)
    Martika fans from Portland in Victoria
    Paul Gray (our musical director and Mr Waa Waa Nee)
    Simon Shapiro (bass player and Mr 1927)

    Slight mix up backstage by Maynard, holding Kamahl album, with Limahl on Totally 80s tour.

    Collette interview 1990

    Collette had a huge hit in Australia in 1989 with her cover of the Anita Ward disco classic Ring My Bell which was co-produced by Pee Wee Ferris and Kirk Godfrey.

    Far from a one hit wonder, Collette Roberts had 2 other charting singles off her first Raze The Roof album and a reasonable amount of nightclub plays for Upside Down & This Will Be (Everlasting Love)from her second album Attitude in 1991.

    Always a fun, yet strangely controversial guest on the breakfast show, here we are from December 1990.

    Collette spoke with me in studio 217 at JJJ in William St, Kings Cross about her last single “Who Do You Think You Are?” and her new single “Upside Down”. Also discussed were hooded tops, deep house & Fiji. I’ve thrown in some Xmas ID’s and a safe sex message to give you that early 90s feel.
