Kevin Mcdonald's Kevin Mcdonald Show

Susanna Hoffs (The Bangles)



On a special in-studio episode, Kevin chats with Susanna Hoffs about the origins of The Bangles, punk rock memories, and her signature side eye. Susanna recounts seeing the final Sex Pistols concert with Belinda Carlisle, badgering Rodney Bingenheimer for airtime, touring with Cyndi Lauper and Queen, and much more. Meanwhile, Kevin is nearly brought to tears twice, the first time by a Mike Myers anecdote and the second time by a Big Star spelling anomaly. And make sure to listen through to the end of the episode, where Susanna narrates the brief history of Ming Tea, her once (and future?) faux retro mod band with Mike Myers and Matthew Sweet.
