“How Radio Was Done” Part 96
The longest year yet, 1987 continues, this time focusing on cold war paranoia on the cusp of Glasnost. After a brief opening technical difficulty, your host, Izzy Isn’t, first admits to not caring if 1987 goes on forever, and then we’re off with Beau Grites and the U.S. Government officials running Asian drugs, an extended look at the Star Wars Strategic Defense Initiative with Edward Teller and others, Bible prophecy on Russia and the Middle East, the open emergence of Russian rock with examples, and throughout, almost the entire “Radio Kaos” album released in 1987 by Roger Waters.
