This week on Transmission, we're featuring side projects of the 80s New Wave era — and there were a lot of them: from Talking Heads, Duran Duran and The Cure, to New Order, Siouxsie and the Banshees, XTC and more. These musicians packed so much talent, they needed to extend them outside the borders of their own bands. We're gonna check out those other bands on the program.
