Decade of Difference features Talking Heads. Members of the Talking Heads, David Byrne, Chris Frantz, Tina Weymouth, and Jerry Harrison, all former art students, came together in New York City, to create their own version of New Wave that integrated punk with art rock. Their debut, 77, was released to critical acclaim. “Psycho Killer” reached 92 on the Billboard singles chart. Talking Heads’ first single,“Psycho Killer,” aired on  a Decade of Difference on WNRN.

After their debut, Talking Heads, worked with Brian Eno on a trio of albums then took a brief hiatus. On their return in 1983 with Speaking in Tongues, the song “Burning Down the House” gave the band their highest charting song of their career. Inspired by a Parliment/Funkadelic show, Chris Frantz talked about the concert “burning down the house.” These lyrics were picked up by David Byrne and integrated into the song. WNRN featured the Talking Heads with “Burning Down the House.”
