Anyone who saw the BoDeans play live anywhere remembers their unforgettable harmonies and their everyman lyrics. To mark the 1986 release of their breakthrough album, “Love & Hope & Sex & Dreams,” Milwaukee PBS recorded the BoDeans live in concert, to air on Thursday, December 1 at 9:00 p.m. on Channel 10.
Bodeans: 30 Years of Love & Hope & Sex & Dreams was recorded on location at Cedar Creek Park in Cedarburg on a rainy August night. BoDeans co-founder Kurt Neumann led the group through a set list of the band’s classic recordings as well as its new single “My Hometown.” Included in the set list are “Fadeaway,” “Good Things,” “Closer to Free” and “Still the Night.” The program also visits Neumann at the Milwaukee County Historical Society for the opening of an exhibit featuring the band.
