The Popdose Interview: Terri Nunn (2020)

A zeptosecond may officially be the shortest unit of measure of time, but in reality, the shortest measure of time is 15 minutes with Berlin singer Terri Nunn. Within seconds, interviews with Terri stop being interviews and become conversations – case in point: when we interviewed Nunn in 2013, we talked about Berlin, but also talked about Devo, Prince, Giorgio Moroder, Andrew Eldridge, Kylie Minogue, The Psychedelic Furs, Thompson Twins, Trevor Horn, and Kraftwerk – but with only 15 minutes, one must stick to the script, as it were.

Dizzy Heights #74: ‘Boy’ Songs

My apologies to Pete Townshend, whom I completely forgot to mention when talking about the first set.

Thank you, as always, for listening.
