Dave Wakeling of the English Beat — an offshoot of the late '70s and early '80s ska/new wave outfit the Beat — stopped by The Current studios shortly before the band's Saturday evening show at Mill City Nights as part of a national tour with the Paul Collins Beat. Dave chatted with host Mac Wilson about Mac's mellifluous voice, the origins of Halloween, the band's life on tour, Minneapolis crowds and much more.
