Thursday, August 03, 1989

For this August 3, 1989 edition of New Sounds, Peter Gabriel visited the WNYC studios. The show centers around the less pop/Top 40 ventures of Peter Gabriel, mainly his soundtrack to the film The Last Temptation of Christ - “Passion” and the companion record “Passion: Sources”, music taken from an interesting collection of musicians from other cultures and released on the Real World label. Also, he and John touch on the music and the concept of the WOMAD (World of Music Arts and Dance) festival, which began in 1982. Together, WOMAD and Gabriel co-founded Real World Records in 1989, producing high-quality recorded music from all corners of the globe.
