OMG, Casey lite just said Der Kommissar kept Falco from being a one hit wonder. Maybe overseas, but in US, Vienna Calling was his other top 40. Then they said 'Lover was Atlantic Starr's first crossover pop hit, but Circles by them reached the top 40 four years earlier!
They get pretty much all of thier info from Wikipedia. After hearing the show I was curious what happened to Marilyn Martin. I looked her up on Wikipedia and the first line of her bio is word for word what they said about her. This explains why some of their info is way off.

They said Rick took a break to focus on life after Hard To Hold. Actually he didn't take a brief hiatus until after the following years Tao. If wasn't until after the followup to that, Rock of Life, in 1988 that Springfield disappeared for most of the next decade.
This isn't an error per se, but in the April 1989 show they did last week we got three redundant explanations, from different VJ's, of the Latin freestyle dance scene. Yes, that was popular in 1989, but one story on it would have sufficed. Can they coordinate their speaking parts a little better?
From this week's 1981 show: "One of the biggest bands of the 70s, creeping into the 80s just a little bit with this album"--leading into a song by Air Supply, who had no US hits before 1980. Was that intended to be about someone else?
