Episode 81 – Stop Making Sense

Stop Making SenseFor this episode, we are joined by Kyle Dekker from Hot Chocolate Media.  He joins us to watch the Talking Heads concert film Stop Making Sense! Directed by Jonathan Demme of Silence of the Lambs fame, this bare bones concert film is considered to be one of the best in the genre.  We talk a bit about the film itself, the band featured, and our personal experiences with the film in the late 80’s and the early 90’s.  Then we all go out and listen to the soundtrack.

Next up, we’ll still with some 80’s music nostalgia as we watch Purple Rain!
