11:05 Marty Duda's Artist of the Week - The Cars
The Cars arrived from Boston, Massachusetts in 1978 just after punk made it's initial impact. The quintet took the energy from punk and combined it with classic pop and rock elements to become one of the most successful "new wave" bands of the time. Their first album produced countless hits including Good Times Roll, My Best Friend's Girl and Just What I Needed (and that's just the first three tracks on the album).
They went on to have even greater success in 1984 thanks to the cutting-edge videos that accompanied the songs from Heartbeat City - You Might Think and Drive. The band broke up in 1988 and leader Ric Ocasek went on to become a respected producer.
The original members, minus bass player and vocalist Ben Orr, who died of cancer a decade ago, have reunited for a new album entitled Move Like This.
