  1. Listen Thomas Dolby performs in The Current studio

    Apr 12, 2012

Thomas Dolby has been making music for over 30 years, has collaborated with the likes of David Byrne, Peter Gabriel, Stevie Wonder and Herbie Hancock, been called "a brilliant talent" by David Bowie, wrote the synth patch you hear in many of your cell phones and was zapped into our homes via MTV in the 1980's with a catchy little number called "She Blinded Me with Science" among others.

Last week Mr. Dolby played a sold-out show at the Cedar Cultural Center in support of his first release in 20 years, titled A Map of the Floating City, and we were lucky enough to get him into the Current studios for a session and interview with Transmission's Jake Rudh.

Songs played: "Spice Train," "Love is a Loaded Pistol" and "She Blinded Me With Science."
