A Journey Through Stock Aitken Waterman
The UK chart-toppers continued for Stock Aitken Waterman as another two singles reached the top spot in 1989. First, there was Jason Donovan's remake of a much-covered tune. Part of SAW's series of '50s and '60s covers performed by their teen-friendly artists, "Sealed With A Kiss" had the potential to widen Jason's appeal even further, but was the plan to go for the parents and grandparents of the kids buying his records as well? We speak to Mike Stock and David Howells, and hear archive quotes from Jason about the decision. Next, new singer Sonia, Pete Waterman's latest Liverpudlian discovery, shot to the top with debut single "You'll Never Stop Me Loving You". Mike discusses the inspiration for the song, while stylist Sharon McPhilemy recalls what it was like to put Sonia's look together. We also hear from Sequal's Angie Vollaro and Maria Christensen about this episode's third single, fan favourite "Tell Him I Called". Angie and Maria talk about their emergence on Miami's freestyle scene and getting snapped up by a major label, who connected them with SAW. Beyond Sequal, we hear about Maria's time as a solo artist and a songwriter for acts like Celine Dion and Eternal, and the worldwide smash she co-wrote during her time in girl group 3rd Party.Subscribe for bonus material at chartbeats.com.au/sawTwitter: @ChartBeatsAU, @MrMattDenbyInstagram: @chartbeatsauFacebook: Chart Beats: A Journey Through PopEmail: email@example.com
Episode 199: Joe and Kari are back with more R&B Superstars! Even though they've already reached the letter K in the Joel Whitburn book, they had to turn back a few pages to highlight Regina Belle, since that name has popped up a few times in the podcast. Then it's time to shine a spotlight on Kool Moe Dee, Lakeside, and the one and only Patti LaBelle! Canadian Singles: The CBC made a list of the best Canadian Songs of the 80's, and Joe and Kari are discussing a couple of songs by The Northern Pikes (cuties) and Michel Rivard. Joe and Kari are taking a break for one week after this episode to plan something special for EPISODE 200! Stay tuned!

Episode 198: Time to flashback to March 11, 1989, with a look at the ads and articles from Billboard magazine (thank you, Monty Greenly). First up, an ad for a Boy George solo album that started out as an attempt to turn the former Culture Club frontman into a New Jack Swinger. Then, a report on the 1989 Grammy Awards -- which artists received the so-called Grammy Bump, and which new awards caused a bit of controversy? More articles and mentions included The Boys, Guadalcanal Diary, and a love song from the movie "Sing".

A Journey Through Stock Aitken Waterman
After blitzing the Australian and UK charts with her debut album, it was time for Kylie Minogue to move onto her follow-up, Enjoy Yourself, and thanks to the chart-topping success of its lead single, "Hand On Your Heart", there would be nothing difficult about this second album. Mike Stock returns to the podcast to discuss the inspiration and enthusiasm he had for working with Kylie at this point, and we also hear from Matt Aitken and backing singer Miriam Stockley on that topic. We take an in-depth look at the music video for "Hand On Your Heart" and director Chris Langman joins us to explain the lack of enthusiasm about it. Meanwhile, future production duo Julian Gingell and Barry Stone (aka Jewels & Stone, The Alias), who began working as assistant engineers at PWL around this time, share their Kylie memories. Another UK number 1 came from charity record "Ferry 'Cross The Mersey", which was released in the wake of the Hillsborough football disaster, with Liverpudlian acts Gerry Marsden, Paul McCartney, The Christians and Holly Johnson performing on the single. Mike talks about the process of putting that together. And we wrap up the episode with the second single from Donna Summer's Another Place And Time. Did Donna dislike the song? Which version is better: single or album? We speak to Mike, Phil Harding, Pete Hammond and Mae McKenna to address those questions and more.Subscribe for bonus material at chartbeats.com.au/sawTwitter: @ChartBeatsAU, @MrMattDenbyInstagram: @chartbeatsauFacebook: Chart Beats: A Journey Through PopEmail: email@example.com
Episode 195: Happy Valentine's Day! Just to switch it up a bit, Joe and Kari are here to talk about some anti-Valentine's songs. Joan Jett and Alice Cooper got a couple top ten hits out of theirs, but there's also room for songs from Freddie Mercury, Joy Division and J. Geils Band that didn't chart quite so high. Number 195: Looking at some songs ranked on a couple of 200 best songs of the 80's lists. Jungle Brothers and Bad Brains made the list. Are these songs better than a Russell Stover chocolate collection? Listen to episode 195 and find out for yourself!

A Journey Through Stock Aitken Waterman
By early 1989, Jason Donovan had a couple of hits under his belt, but his music career went into overdrive with the release of "Too Many Broken Hearts" and the mass hysteria that followed his every move in the UK. Jason has been the first to acknowledge it took him a while to warm up as a singer and we hear from engineer Karen Hewitt and long-term PWL session singers Mae McKenna and Miriam Stockley about the crucial role backing vocals played in rounding out the Stock Aitken Waterman sound. A major part of Jason's teen appeal was his image, which was showcased in the music video for "Too Many Broken Hearts". Director Chris Langman and David Howells answer a few questions about the clip. Who was that girl on the tractor and where did the guitar come from? The second song in this episode is the second charity single by Pat & Mick. Another disco cover, "I Haven't Stopped Dancing Yet" became the duo's biggest hit. We hear from Mick Brown about the follow-up and, for the first time on the podcast, Pat Sharp shares his memories of being a part-time pop star.Subscribe for bonus material at chartbeats.com.au/sawTwitter: @ChartBeatsAU, @MrMattDenbyInstagram: @chartbeatsauFacebook: Chart Beats: A Journey Through PopEmail: email@example.com
Episode 193: First up in Tidbits, a quick review of the recent Yacht Rock Doc "Sometimes When We Touch", now streaming on Paramount+. Joe gives it a Thumbs Up, and is now rethinking his stance on Ray Parker Jr. Listener Mail Bag: Thank you to listeners Heidi, Peter and Giovanni for their suggestions. A couple of hits from Martha and the Muffins and Soda Stereo are highlighted, then a look into the soundtrack for the movie "Hiding Out". Finally, Joe and Kari inspect some hits from the German Charts.
Episode 192: Coming Around Again - the segment where we look at songs that charted twice! Duran Duran had a hit in the UK that went all the way to number 2 in 1982. So why did it take 3 years for the song to hit the US charts? NKOTB released an album before Hangin' Tough, but it didn't hit. So how did one of the flop singles become such a success in 1989? Ask Kari. Just A Bit Outside: Joe and Kari look at some of these "JaBOs" to determine if some songs from 1980 deserved to hit the Top 40. Dottie West, The Captain and Tenille, and Debbie Jacobs are up for discussion, and the results may surprise you! That Dottie West song certainly surprised your hosts!
One thing Billy Idol doesn't miss about the 1980s is the paparazzi. He tells us he prefers current social media for getting his story out to his fans over the way it was back in the day. Billy Idol on why he prefers social to traditional media. There was a bit of a wall for years and it's broken that. And it's fun, really, because in the old days you really had to rely on newspapers and fair reporting and those two things exactly go together. It's fun that you can go straight to the people and chat to them and have a way of interacting that still doesn't infringe on your privacy.” Idol performed at Saturday's iHeart '80s concert in L.A. His social media tells us that he has a pair of six-date residencies at House of Blues in Las Vegas between March 16th and 26th, and between May 4th and 14th..@BillyIdol tells us he prefers today's social media to having to 'rely on newspapers and fair reporting.' - Tweet
A Journey Through Stock Aitken Waterman
She was the queen of disco; they were an unstoppable pop music force. Together, Donna Summer and Stock Aitken Waterman made some of their best music together. In this look at the first single from the Another Place And Time album, we chart Donna's landmark run of hits in the 1970s and difficult transition into the 1980s thanks to a deal with Geffen Records that saw her taken away from the songwriting and production team of Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte, with whom she'd collaborated on classics like "Love To Love You Baby", "I Feel Love" and "Hot Stuff". Following a commercially underappreciated couple of albums, Donna's union with SAW resulted in her greatest success in years and another trans-Atlantic smash for the Hit Factory with the joyous lead single "This Time I Know It's For Real". We hear from Matt Aitken, Dee Lewis and Pete Hammond about working with Donna on the album, which is regarded by fans as a high point in SAW's career, and David Howells talks about the distinctive front cover image that caused waves in the US.

Robbie Burgess lost his father and attempted to take his mind off the grief by starting an online music station. While struggling to make it financially viable, he wanted to press on and interview the musicians that made the 80s music so memorable to him with a podcast show. Robbie's passion for music came about at a very early age. His parents split up when he was one; going along to his dad's gigs in a country music band immersed Robbie into the music world. A self-proclaimed music fanatic, Robbie talks Queen, Phil Collins, Steely Dan, Wang Chung, Duran Duran, Prince, Talk Talk, Tears for Fears, and so many more incredible artists. He also provides great tips for those looking to play the drums or to start a podcast of their own! Somehow, we also cover Benny Hill, Page 3 Girls, J.K. Rowling, the risks of a cancel culture world, and how loathsome the band Oasis happens to be (in our view). We run the whole gamut.

A Journey Through Stock Aitken Waterman
A protest song. A novelty record. A camp classic. The beginning of the end. "I'd Rather Jack" by The Reynolds Girls has been called a lot of things over the years and it remains one of the Stock Aitken Waterman singles that is most fiercely debated by fans. A swing at restrictive radio playlists, the record was fronted by teenage sisters Linda and Aisling Reynolds, who got their deal with PWL Records by approaching Pete Waterman repeatedly after his weekly radio show in their home city of Liverpool. The duo was seen as the perfect act to perform the track, which was the natural successor to SAW's previous swipe at the industry, "Roadblock". Matt Aitken reveals the unexpected inspiration for the song, while David Howells and Lino Carbosiero talk about their memories of turning the sisters into pop stars. As well as reflecting on the importance of "I'd Rather Jack" as a sign of how SAW were laser focussed in their targeting of the teen and pre-teen market in 1989, we also dive deep into the archives to detail the feud that erupted between The Reynolds Girls and Pete Waterman after the song had been a top 10 hit in the UK, and discuss Linda and Aisling's hasty exit from the music industry and our own efforts to track down the elusive sisters.Subscribe for bonus material at chartbeats.com.au/sawTwitter: @ChartBeatsAU, @MrMattDenbyInstagram: @chartbeatsauFacebook: Chart Beats: A Journey Through PopEmail: email@example.com

A Journey Through Stock Aitken Waterman
Thanks to a little help from comedy trio Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders and Kathy Burke (aka Lananeeneenoonoo), Bananarama's hit streak continued as their remake of The Beatles' "Help!" took them back to the UK top 3 in early 1989. Released in support of Comic Relief, the cover version was true to the song's pop roots musically, but came with added input from the satirical girl group sprinkled throughout. Like the French & Saunders sketch from Christmas 1988 that had inspired the collaboration, the jokes were incredibly pointed, with Jacquie O'Sullivan's role in the group turned into a punchline (with her blessing, it would seem). But following the success of "Help!", Bananarama hit a difficult patch, with their ongoing work with Stock Aitken Waterman unable to deliver anything they were happy with and the trio turning to producer Youth for the bulk of their 1991 album, Pop Life. We look at the troubled SAW sessions from 1988 to 1990 and discuss why fan favourite "Ain't No Cure" was a wasted opportunity, with input from Matt Aitken on the matter. Plus. we hear from Youth about Pop Life, which gave Bananarama their last UK top 30 hits as a trio.Subscribe for bonus material at chartbeats.com.au/sawTwitter: @ChartBeatsAU, @MrMattDenbyInstagram: @chartbeatsauFacebook: Chart Beats: A Journey Through PopEmail: firstname.lastname@example.org

Episode 188: In our look at (almost) each of the years of the 1980's, Joe and Kari are up to Episode 188, which means it's time to check out an event from 1988; the year Celine Dion sang the winning song in the Eurovision contest. While the song "Ne partez pas sans moi" might not ring any bells, it's a song that led to Celine becoming the international superstar that we now know and love. Inspired by Celine, HRT80s highlights some of the "BEST" Canadian Songs of the 80s, as determined by the CBC, including tunes from The Parachute Club, Lee Aaron, Red Rider, and Toronto, among others.

A Journey Through Stock Aitken Waterman
Samantha Fox joins us to kick off our look at the singles produced by Stock Aitken Waterman released in 1989, with her remake of "I Only Wanna Be With You" the first track to hit the chart that year. We go right back to the start of Samantha's career and hear from her about becoming famous as a glamour model, being approached by Jive Records to audition to sing "Touch Me (I Want Your Body)" and turning that into a worldwide chart-topper. Samantha discusses how on her self-titled second album, her work with two very different sets of producers — SAW and Full Force — resulted in her having completely separate top 10 hits on either side of the Atlantic. Then, we hear about the songs Sam recorded with SAW along with "I Only Wanna Be With You" for third album I Wanna Have Some Fun — one of which made the album and one which another Hit Factory artist released instead. Samantha also fills us in on the record company wrangling behind fourth album Just One Night that resulted in the SAW tracks recorded being left off and reveals what she has planned in 2023 for her 40th year in showbiz.Subscribe for bonus material at chartbeats.com.au/sawTwitter: @ChartBeatsAU, @MrMattDenbyInstagram: @chartbeatsauFacebook: Chart Beats: A Journey Through PopEmail: email@example.com

It's the holiday season once again so Holly and I present to you this timeless classic episode...now with music! Dave's favorite holiday song is "Fairytale of New York" by The Pogues.
