John Oates is one half of the biggest selling musical duo of all time, Hall & Oates, responsible for an endless list of stone cold classics, from You Make My Dreams Come True to Maneater and Sara Smile to Rich Girl. John has a conversation with Tom about the upcoming free virtual concert he is putting on at 8pm EST on March 20th, called OATES SONG FEST 7908. This will stream on nugs.tv and comprises a celebration of stories and songs with performers including Dave Grohl, Sammy Hagar, Daryl Hall, Dan+Shay, Darius Rucker, Sara Bareilles, Bob Weir, Shawn Colvin, Gavin DeGraw, and Jewel, among others, with all donations and proceeds going to Feeding America®. NB - This episode was originally recorded as part of Tom's Greatest Music of All Time Podcast, which organically evolved from its inception in early 2020, from a focus on the discussion of music to also exploring pop culture, comedy, entertainment, entrepreneurship, philosophy, science, politics and current affairs commentary. It was renamed as the Tom Cridland Podcast in January 2023.
