So glad you enjoyed this one, John Kochanowski! They are amazing and so influential.

Between your dubbing me your official alt-80s guru and this story being curated (my first music story to ever be curated), my week is made!

I’ve been kicking around the idea of putting all of my alt-80’s stories into one story — maybe alphabetically. I’ll have to think about how to tackle that. I’ll tag you when/if I post that.

Thank you so much for reading/listening. Sometimes I get discouraged here at BMT. I’ve been writing music stories consistently for 19 months and it’s not uncommon for only 3 or 4 people to read them. Do I keep doing this? Is it too frivolous and insignificant?

Your kind words are well-timed to give me encouragement to keep going!
