Listenning as we speak. The Tea Party song you guys are talking about is "Fire In The Head". Favorit Barry bit was when he did the "automated therapist" while filling in for Josie.

Barry Taylor was mostly after my time listening to the Edge, but really enjoyable interview, eventually. It took a little while to warm up.

What I remember of the era, a friend in the industry was referring to 102.1 was as "Edge One or Two". I thought he was mocking the playlist, but maybe he was talking about songs per hour...

Odd bit of silence at 1:34 - 1:48?

I forgot Space Oddity opened with the dead air... so that silence is actually the start of Space Oddity.

Josh Holiday who was on The Edge around the same time as Barry originated the Tea Party "you" bit.
