    1982 was a fantastic year for kicking off a lot of New Wave music for me. Paul, I don’t know this, but I so rely on your expertise and your encyclopedic knowledge to introduce me to tunes that will become new favorites. I can’t thank you enough.

    Damn!! Paul, this record is FABULOUS!!!! I love records with drive, a great bass-line, energetic vocals, and, of course, all that brass!! So propulsive and lively, shoot, it’s just….AWESOME! Martin Rushent does wicked dub versions too. Man, do I feel jazzed and juiced up. Thanks Paul for this excellent record. You can surely pick ones that get us off our feet and kicks our asses. Gosh, I love what you love!!!

    Wow! I didn’t see this one coming. Fantastic song, Paul. “Radio” is extremely catchy, in my opinion, and should have been a bigger hit in the U.S. This has been one of my favorites since 2008 when I first discovered the song on the 2005 reissue of “Uprhythm, Downbeat”, which I had purchased for “Working Girl” (one of my all-time favorite songs). This is my first time hearing “Radio [Dub Version]”. Thank you!

    Thanks for this one, I think I had inquired once before if you happened to have Working Girl by same band……would be great if it could happen.
    Excellent work you do….much appreciated ♫


    DjPaulT Reply:

    I think I do Dan I will have to go look in storage. If I find it I will post it 🙂

    Ooh. I hope that Paul has the original 1981 Steve Lillywhite version of “Working Girl”, too. It appears on the 2005 reissue of “Uprhythm, Downbeat”, but it’s sourced from a very obvious crackly vinyl source. It sounds okay but needs the Paul treatment.

    Thanks Paul.

    Oh My God, Paul !!! Thankyou thankyou thankyou ! I have had this 12-inch for years but it was in such bad condition because I thrashed that Dub version to death in my youth. I cannot wait to listen to this in all it’s pristine glory !!! Thanks !!!!


  8. Jason Says:

    I also thrashed this song back in the day. Looking forward to hearing a clean copy again. Thank you Paul.

    Thank you Paul for uploading this one. It was huge hit here in Australia back in 1982.
