    Lana Del Rey 'Norman F---ing Rockwell!' (2019) - More Like Yawna Del Rey?

    13 GIU 2024 · Our guest Andrew Pugliese from Elvis Duran and the Morning Show brings in one of his favorite albums ever, Lana Del Rey's celebrated 2019 album Norman F---ing Rockwell!, to the show. Despite impressive record sales, luminary status with critics and a ravenous fanbase, Lana's music has for most of her career remained on the fringes of mainstream culture. NFR! is widely considered a turning point in Lana's career, but will our cohosts appreciate the record's supposedly refined lyrics and soft/psych balladry? Listen to find out!

    Stevie Wonder 'Songs in the Key of Life' (1976) - The album the world needs to revisit

    30 MAG 2024 · Andrew and Diamond finally get to an album they've been looking forward to since launching the podcast, Stevie Wonder's Songs in the Key of Life.  Everyone knows at least a few of the numerous hits from Songs in the Key of Life — "Isn't She Lovely," "I Wish," "Sir Duke," "As" — but as Andrew and Diamond learn, Stevie Wonder's 1976 opus is packed with funk, soul, jazz and salient social commentary from track 1 to track 21.  Just 26 years old at the time of its release, Songs was the 18th (!) studio album of Stevie's recording career, and he was as inspired as ever. Andrew and Diamond discuss why the album is so vital and how they each wish they found it sooner! Subscribe so you don't miss an episode of At First Listen!

    CNN's Alisyn Camerota and the Ramones 'Rocket to Russia' (1977)

    16 MAG 2024 · We have a wide-ranging conversation with CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota about the Ramones, her intimate history with punk rock, her career in news, Prince (!) and especially her must-read memoir, Combat Love.   The Ramones are undoubtedly one of the most important punk bands of all-time and their career remains a crucial chapter in the history of American music. The band's third studio album, 1977's Rocket to Russia, was not the Ramones' biggest commercial success, but it did include several iconic Ramones tracks like "Rockaway Beach," "Cretin Hop" and "Sheena Is a Punk Rocker." Moreover, it was a crucial album in the life of a young Alisyn Camerota!    After living with Rocket to Russia and Alisyn’s memoir, are Andrew and Diamond hoppin’ down to Rockaway Beach … or will they have to break news to their guest that they are still square as ever?

    Q104.3's Maria Milito Leads Us Through 'Led Zeppelin II' (1969)

    2 MAG 2024 · Q104.3 New York's Maria Milito joins the podcast to continue Diamond's introduction to rock 'n' roll with an exploration of one of the most influential rock records of all-time, Led Zeppelin II.  Led Zeppelin's early career was such a whirlwind that much of the band's second album was written during rehearsals and in-between roadtrips. The LP was recorded and mixed quickly at a number of different studios yet still holds up today as an iconic album that foreshadowed generations of hard rock virtuosity to come. Even after her improbable enjoyment of the White Stripes Elephant, Diamond has no idea what to expect. Heavy metal horror or bluesy bliss? Listen to find out! Subscribe so you don't miss an episode!

  • The White Stripes 'Elephant' (2003) - Who's enlisting in a Seven Nation Army?

    18 APR 2024 · For At First Listen's first true rock album, Andrew picked The White Stripes hit 2003 LP, Elephant. The band's fourth album overall, Elephant contains the most iconic rock anthem of its generation in "Seven Nation Army" and earned the band a Grammy award for 'Best Alternative Music' album. But Elephant contains no other bonafide hits, and is on the whole kind of an odd record. While Diamond was nervous about listening to an album with punk and blues roots, Andrew completely forgot just how quirky Elephant really is.  Listen to hear the conversation!

  • Music Legend Nile Rodgers Revisits 'C'est Chic' (1978), Talks Hendrix, Prince & More!

    4 APR 2024 · Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and Songwriters Hall of Famer Nile Rodgers is our inaugural guest on the At First Listen podcast! On this episode, Andrew and Diamond dive into Chic's 1978 sophomore album, C'est Chic, with Nile himself as their guide. Nile offers recollections from creating legendary hits like "Le Freak," "I Want Your Love," "Chic Cheer" and others, as well as memories of his close relationship with fellow Chic co-founder and producer late-bassist Bernard Edwards, as well as music icons Jimi Hendrix and Prince. Nile is arguably the most successful record producer in music history, and his fingerprints are all over generations of music from the 1970s to present day. He's been so successful that his favorite white Fender Stratocaster earned the name Hitmaker, and he still uses the guitar to this day.  Chic is one of the best-selling musical acts of the '70s, with grooves and melodies that have taken on new life in hip-hop and R&B, and as a producer Nile has created countless hits, including records by Sister Sledge, Diana Ross, David Bowie, Madonna, Duran Duran, Daft Punk, Daddy Yankee, LE SSERAFIM, Beyoncé and many others.  Listen and let us know who should be on the show next!

    7 MAR 2024 · Andrew introduces Diamond to Elton John with one of Elton's classic albums from the '70s, Honky Chateau. While Elton and collaborator Bernie Taupin were widely regarded as hitmakers prior to 1972, Chateau marked a turning point in the duo's career, as the first of seven consecutive U.S. number one albums they co-authored from '72 - '75. But more than 50 years after it hit number 1 on the pop charts, will Honky Chateau strike a chord with Diamond? Can Andrew pronounce Chateau without humiliating himself?
