Geeks and Beats podcast, episode 191: Twice in a Lifetime

Note: This week’s podcast was recorded at 10 in the morning as opposed to our more civilized time of 7pm. That means no alcohol. Does it show?

iPhone owner? A new study shows 2 out of 3 of you are doing better than 75% of the population. We explain. Eric Alper drops by the studio with his latest isolated vocal track: Talking Heads’ “Once in a Lifetime.” We’ll learn how the band developed its style, and that one of the most important songs of the 20th century wasn’t much of a hit. Plus: our Facebook Live on Michael’s Back Deck show has a date.

BONUS: If you want to read more about the Talking Heads, go here. (Thanks to Walter for the link.)
