On tonight’s show Karin plays the best iconic bands of the 80s as well as chatting with Mike Score of the legendary A Flock Of Seagulls live from his short break in Las Vegas while touring the USA. We chat with Mike about the bands new album ‘String Theory’ as well as performing at The Hollywood Bowl, Mikes best memories, and of course that 80s hairstyle!
A Flock of Seagulls were formed in Liverpool in 1979. The group, whose best-known line-up comprised Mike Score, Ali Score, Frank Maudsley and Paul Reynolds, hit the peak of their chart success in the early 1980s. Their string of international hit singles including “I Ran (So Far Away)” (1982), “Space Age Love Song” (1982), “Wishing (If I Had a Photograph of You)” (1982), and “The More You Live, the More You Love” (1984).
