    Episode 319: Misrepresented – Chumbawamba

    Episode 318: Misrepresented – Thomas Dolby

    All this week, we talk about artists that are misrepresented by their big hit. One of the first to come to mind was Soul Asylum and “Runaway Train.” Our discussion of this Minneapolis band’s career includes an excellent take from listener BJ Bonin.
