Get Ready for the One-Day Radio Rally!

I’m a sucker for a good B-side. As a teenager, one of my favorite cassettes was the 1984 Warner Bros. compilation Revenge of the Killer B’s. My classmates might have recognized some of the featured artists (Talking Heads, the B-52’s, Depeche Mode, Madonna), but they didn’t know these songs.
