Released in 1983, the Chameleons (UK) were in the midst of the post-punk/new wave explosion. Their sound was often compared to U2 and Psychedelic Furs but often failed to have the mass popularity of their peers. Whenever I play a Chameleons tune on WEVL, I get more positive response than any other band.
(post-show cooldown) Today's show definitely had a steady shot of upbeat material. This probably accounts for the alertness of the breaks of the radio show. Thanks for all the phone calls and emails. I enjoy every email I receive (the non-spam ones, that is).
