Part 2 of my conversation with guest Ric Dube as we look at the career of '70s pop star Leo Sayer. I've also got music from Menace Beach, Thee Oh Sees and The Fresh & Onlys.

Show notes:

- Recorded at More Lost Time world HQ

- Check out our new web series Trust Fund Challenge

- In '77, Sayer hit it big with "You Make Me Feel Like Dancing"

- Jumped on disco bandwagon

- Hit #1 and was on charts for 17 weeks

- Had a song in top 40 from Nov. '76 to Feb. '78

- "When I Need You" also hit #1

- Ric: Skate park memories

- Smoothed out all the edges

- We listened to a lot of kind of stuff at college newspaper

- By the mid-80s, Sayer was a distant memory

- "More Than I Can Say" was originally written by guys from The Crickets

- Half country, half Fleetwood Mac

- Sayer started doing covers in the '80s

- Ric loves Anzac biscuits from Australia

- "Sheetwood Mac"

- Sayer had some UK hits in the '80s

- Ric talks up the post

- What happened to Beck?

- An Australian artist remixed "Thunder in My Heart" in 2006 and it went to #1 there

- Sayer did Beatles covers for All This and World War II, a pseudo-documentary that bombed

- Voiced Dan the Forest Ranger in Canadian cartoon called The Raccoons on Ice

 

Music:

Menace Beach - Fortune Teller

Thee Oh Sees - I Was Denied

The Fresh & Onlys - Fascinated
