The Shadow- July 1st

Hey now, hey now! The original artist is from down under and the song today is likely the biggest hit in their entire catalog. It’s from their 1986 self-titled debut and is about “they”- “They come, they come, to build a wall between us.”

The Shadow artist is actually a collaboration of a band from North Carolina that had a real catchy song called “Coffee” that we have loved at here WTMD- joined by one half of a band that will be performing at the BSO as a part of the new series, Pulse.

The Shadow- June 23rd


The original artist defines “one-hit-wonder” exceptionally well. They were a British band, not Italian- except when they were in Italy’s capital.

This Kentucky native likes…
