Welcome to Tuesday’s Memes. We are going to tackle the decade that is the 80’s because music was fun and not depressing like the 90’s (I will do the 90’s next…maybe). For those that grew up in the 80’s, I hope this brings back some memories. If you didn’t grow up in the 80’s, well…I am sorry for you!!
Let us do some graphs to get the point across…

Wow! What a crappy week for releases. Not in what is being released, but the lack of releases. There isn’t much to choose from. I hope there is something for you, but it is slim pickin’s. Have a great weekend!! I will at least stick a music video with them if there is one so you can check them out.

Something new on 2Loud2OldMusic.com this week will be podcast reviews. I have been digging through a ton of music podcasts over the last few months and there are several that I have grown to love and they are now a weekly event that I listen to on the drive home from work.
First up for review is ‘Rock Talk with Mitch Lafon’ on Westwood One. So, who is Mitch Lafon?

You don’t get the normal stale, boring interview. Mitch has a way of making the artist feel relaxed and willing to talk. Hell, most of the time the artist are coming to Mitch for the interview not the other way around. That right there tells me a lot about his credibility.
