Liner Notes

  • This is the first episode of the "Listener Series," wherein listeners who paid money so they can co-host an episode and pick the topic.

  • Today's guest co-host is Jon Lamoreaux, host of the music podcast The Hustle; the podcast looks at the impact of brief rock stardom. It's about the guys and gals who had "it," then they didn't. Jon has interviewed such artists as Eric Bazillian from The Hooters, Mike Reno from Loverboy, Bill Wadhams from Animotion, Ellen Foley, and many more.

  • The topic: Lost Gems of the 80's, the songs that have fallen through the cracks of 80's rock and roll glory.

  • Joe Esposito wrote "You're the Best" for Rocky III, it wasn't chosen. Esposito then co-wrote "Hearts on Fire" for Rocky IV, he didn't perform it.

  • Pat wants to get Rindy Ross from Quarterflash on the podcast.

  • Stephen Bishop got mad at John during their phone interview because he put him and Bertie Higgins in the same sentence.

  • E.G. Daily sings background vocals on "Time for Waiting." She played Dottie in Pee Wee's Big Adventure and was the voice of Tommy Pickles on Rugrats and Buttercup on Powerpuff Girls.

  • Jon's favorite concert is Bruce Springsteen.

  • Pat has a theory that Jonathan Cain and Neal Schon wanted to recruit Michael Bolton into Journey after Steve Perry left.

  • The most recent artist Jon got into is St. Lucia. For Pat, it is Tegan and Sara.

  • The lead singer of Q-Feel is Martin Page, who co-wrote "We Built This City" by Starship and "These Dreams" by Heart. He also played keyboards on "Ghostbusters." He also worked with Earth, Wind & Fire, Bernie Taupin, and Robbie Robertson.

  • The Producers played the first ever MTV New Year's Eve special. They're the only band Jon's contacted to see how much it would cost for them to play his house.

  • A Bob Welch complaint, Designation 45C24K, Tertiary Adjunct of Unimatrix One.

  • Nils Lofgren's album is called Flip; Nils would actually flip on stage while holding his guitar.

  • Pat's apologies: "Raised on Radio" by The Ravyns and "Working Class Man" by Jimmy Barnes.

  • Remember when the Pat Francis Rock Solid autograph pen was a thing? No? Me neither.

  • The Ferris Bueller soundtrack wasn't released until 2016 and it was limited to 5000 copies.

  • Jon was the one who requested "Breaking Away" by Balance on the Download Now! episode.

  • The Starchild makes an appearance talking about Sylvio on The Sopranos.

  • If you want to request an artist for Jon's podcast, email him and he will do his best to track them down and interview them.
