A two-hour a-ha tribute show called “Chrysalis Dreams: 30 Years of A-ha” will be airing on Monday, January 21, from 6 to 8 p.m. (eastern time in the U.S.) on the Albany, NY, radio station WEXT. To listen online, use this link.

Presented by Jeremy Clowe, this retrospective will take a look at the career of the band and their music (from a uniquely American perspective).

Here is some info from the radio station’s website:

“They topped the international charts, sold over 35 million albums, achieved world records and awards, and inspired multiple generations of fans world-wide. You know the song… but do you know the band?

On Monday, January 21 starting at 6pm, join listener Jeremy Clowe as he takes a look at the phenomenal career of the Norwegian trio, A-ha. Best known for their massive hit, “Take on Me”, A-ha became a breakthrough sensation in the 1980s with their unique blend of melody and introspective lyrics, which struck a definite chord with listeners around the globe.

Clowe will bring us current on the band’s career — from their humble beginnings in Oslo to their huge international success in the 1980s; their transition from reluctant pop stars to critically acclaimed artists, and influence on such bands as Coldplay, Keane and Sondre Lerche. We’ll look at groundbreaking videos, Guinness World Records, knighthood and, of course, the music.

“Chrysalis Dreams: 30 Years of A-ha” is a two-hour look at the career of three artists from Norway who truly lived a boy’s adventure tale.

Jeremy Clowe is an independent artist/filmmaker living in the Capital Region. Over the years he has interviewed such music acts as Neil Finn, Travis, The Temptations, and A-ha. Check out clips from his A-ha documentary on his website.”
