On this week's Fab Files we go back to the halcyon years of Reaganomics, Nintendo and New Coke: the 1980s, and in particular, Paul McCartney's music that he made in the '80s. His output during that decade gets a bad rap, with critics calling it everything from lightweight to "40 lashes with a wet noodle" wimpy. But is any of that true? We investigate the good ("My Brave Face"), the bad ("Spies Like Us"), the ugly ("The Girl is Mine") and all points in between of Paul McCartney in the '80s on this week's Fab Files Saturday March 8 at 3 PM (EST) and late Sunday March 9 at midnight (EDT) on WETS HD2. See the very first post in this topic for info on how to pick up the show online! And now Fab Files is on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/FabFilesonWETSFM

Here we go!

On the topic, I'd say the 80s were pretty bad for him, with the only good album being Tug Of WarComing Up being a non Tug Of War highlight.

Question, do you do it live, or record it beforehand and broadcast on Saturday? Because if it's live you could try to make it more interactive, like having a question of the day and asking people to answer on things like Twitter, or on this forum, then reading answers at the end. Don't know how big your audience is, but it could be cool.

Recorded weeks beforehand. No way we could do this live for various reasons. Although if I get enough listeners, I'd love to do an all-request show where the listeners pick the songs.

Flowers In The Dirt and McCartney II are excellent albums which bookend a very inconsistent era for Paul; he released 7 albums in the 80's (not including the All The Best compilation), 3 of which would be very high in my top 10 Paul albums (including Wings). Not bad when dressed up like that.

I forgot about Flowers In The Dirtbut McCartney II isn't really that good.

On this week's Fab Files we start the first of a two-part series of episodes looking at the Abbey Road album with a special airing of Paul Ingles' 2009 radio special A Spin Down Abbey Road, which features commentary from musicians, authors and critics talking about what makes that album so special. This week's episode listens to the first half of the documentary that covers all the songs that made up Side One of Abbey Road from "Come Together" to "I Want You (She's So Heavy)," then we hear every song from Side One covered by the likes of Aerosmith, Raffi, Florence and the Machine, and more. A Spin Down Abbey Road- Side One, on this week's Fab Files Saturday March 15 at 3 PM (EDT) and late Sunday March 16 at midnight (EDT) exclusively on WETS HD2. See the very first post in this topic for info on how to pick up the show online! And now Fab Files is on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/FabFilesonWETSFM
