Greg Kihn - Episode 710

Steve Cooper talks with musician/novelist/radio personality Greg Kihn. Greg is best known for being the front man for the group The Greg Kihn Band. In 1981, he earned his first bona-fide hit on The Billboard Hot 100 with the # 15 single, The Breakup Song (They Don't Write Em'), from the Rockihnroll album. He continued in a more commercial vein through the 1980s with a series of pun-titled albums: Kihntinued (1982), Kihnspiracy (1983), Kihntageous (1984), and Citizen Kihn (1985). His biggest hit was Jeopardy, which reached # 2 Pop, in 1983. The groundbreaking video became an MTV favorite and was spoofed by Weird Al Yankovic as I Lost on Jeopardy. Over his career he has released 17 albums, the latest being Rekihndled in 2017 and the band still tours to this day. From 1996 to 2012 he was a morning radio host for the classic station KUFX in San Francisco and he has also published 6 novels.
