'PopMart really came into its own when we went south of the border, down Mexico way. Everything started to make more sense down there'
'When we arrived in Mexico, the national radio station changed its name to Pop Radio. There was a feeling in the country that's hard to describe. Everybody knew that w were filming the show, that this was the moment when it was going to be recorded for posterity.'
