Martin and I sit down and have a conversation with Jack Hues of Wang Chung. (Yes, I am a huge fan) We talk music, songwriting and the hits and misses in the 80’s. Jack is a brilliant songwriter, a huge Beatles fan (you can really hear it in their music) and his insights on music and the music industry is so spot on. It’s more than an interview its a lesson in the art of surviving in the music industry and becoming a cultural icon. So pull up a chair and everybody Wang Chung tonight. (oh come on, I had to go there!)
