This Month on AiV--K-Tel's Neon Nights: Rock's Danceable Side

This month on Adventures in Vinyl, we will be spinning back to 1982 for Neon Nights: Rock's Danceable Side.  This album features some popular songs from 1981-1982, plus some pretty obscure tunes as well.

The Human League, Rick James, Prince and Hall and Oates are all highlighted on this album. So are Shalamar (before the "Dancing in the Sheets" fame) and Atlantic Starr, too, befoe they became famous for "Always."

War is also on this album and sounding very different from their "Cisco Kid" and "Why Can't We Be Friends" days.

And Dazz Band, Junior and Cheri you may hear for the very first time.

There was a commercial for this album and it looked something like this:

You can hear this episode through the month of October at 12:30 pm Saturday, 4pm Sunday and 2 am on Wednesday morning. All times central.
