Episode 604: Duran Duran’s Rio with Music Writer Annie Zaleski

Were you a fan of Duran Duran all the way back to the beginning. We’re betting you’d still learn a ton from music writer Annie Zaleski, who just authored a book about the band’s “Rio” album. She joins the show this week to talk about her work, our shared love of Duran Duran and the reason they’re not yet in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Stuck in the ’80s is sponsored by The 80s Cruise. The March 2022 voyage is sold out, but we’ll still be there – along with all the original bands – for this amazing trip. Headliners include The Human League, ABC, 38 Special, Belinda Carlisle, Morris Day & The Time, Berlin and many more. Go to the official site now to join the waiting list.
