Her Name is Rio and She’s Having a Big Birthday!


Can you believe Rio is 39? I am struggling to reconcile that concept. I would swear I just turned 30….

It just doesn’t seem like that album has been a part of my life for that long. I still remember the very day I bought it. I can remember the excitement I had when I ripped off the cellophane, and the dismay I felt when I realized that “Is There Something I Should Know”, my very favorite song at the time (okay, my very favorite song even at present) wasn’t on it. But more on that when you listen to the podcast! Let’s celebrate Rio!  

Please note, the episode was recorded and edited prior to the news of Duran Duran performing on the BBMAs.

Once upon a time, there were two Duran Duran fans. One named Amanda, the other named Rhonda. Over many vodka tonics, they would laugh about the idea of one day writing a book about their fan experiences. While that manuscript is still being composed...Rhonda thought they should write a blog. (What was she THINKING?!) Lo and behold: The Daily Duranie was born.
