Classically Martin: Red Flag - Russian Radio

It was during my last year of high school that I had a habit of collecting cassettes. There were two of them that I played over and over again around this time. One was Real Life's Lifetime and the other was Red Flag's Naive Dance. The latter was a collection of remixes of tracks from their Naive Art album which includes their biggest hit, "Russian Radio." I think that the only reason I picked it up was that I couldn't find Naive Art and it had many of the same song titles. Both are great and well worth picking up.

I mention the album and post the video because I'll be lucky enough to interview Chris Reynolds from the band on Saturday. He was a pleasure to talk to already. Again, I'm lucky enough to talk to an artist that really had an impact on my musical tastes. Now, I just need to talk him into releasing a type of hits collection. I can't say enough about their music and wish that I could post more of their songs or videos but do yourself a favor and search for them.

Hmm, never heard of this song or band! The singer looks like that one dude from Depeche Mode.

I don't recall hearing this group before but their sound is unmistakably 80's.

I was thinking the same thing Beckeye said - about Depeche Mode.

I have never heard of this band either... this was a good song. Thanks for sharing!

Russian Radio rocks! I loved this song when I was in high school. It is totally 80's synth pop.
