Today in Duran History – Radio 1995

On this day in 1995, Simon, Nick and Warren were interviewed on KROQ radio.  I was not anywhere around KROQ to hear this interview, but I’m sure it was an interesting one!  I also wonder why John was not present.  Anyone know?

While we are speaking of radio, Duran Duran posted the following on their Facebook page yesterday:

Calling all Audio Collectors – we have a task for you!

John is working on a sound collage project (more details TBA!) that requires Duran Duran stations IDs from 1981 to 1995. If you have a recording of a band member announcing themselves on a radio station (“This is John Taylor from Duran Duran and you’re listening to Z100!”), we’d love to hear it!

Please email Patty@punkmasters.com if you happen to have a cool collection of audio IDs… We won’t be able to respond to the emails to confirm receipt, but would really appreciate your help with this.

Thank you in advance!

Call me fascinated!  What exactly will this sound collage project be?!  I can understand why it starts in 1981 but why end it in 1995?

Anyway, I hope a lot of people help!!!

  1. John’s creativity is impressive LOL
    I have to look in my old music cassettes collection, as I might have taped something from the radio in the late 80s (the Big Thing – Liberty years).
    No, I firstly thought the sound montage would be used for his and Nick’s musical….. let’s see if with my thoughts on the sound montage use, my creativity is more impressive than John’s one… hehehehe LOL .
