It's the season 3 finale! Go West's Richard Drummie joins Genevieve to reminisce about the band's early career, their split and subsequent reunion. He talks about working with Sylvester Stallone, elephants - and why the band is still in debt to their record company to this day.

Richard also talks about how the King of Wishful Thinking gave Go West a second bite of the success cherry, Jimmy Fallon and Paul Rudd's video remake, and the plans they have to celebrate their 35th anniversary.
