If any ride in a taxi makes you nostalgic for Andy Kaufman, if you ever tried a milk and pepsi because Laverne drank them, if you laugh at people who think Wham's "Careless Whisper" is entitled "Never Gonna Dance Again" or if you wasted a half an hour on the couch watching Bob Ross paint happy little trees, then you’re listening to the right station; this is the 80s at 8, powered by Neil Finn of Crowded House at The Shubert Theater April 10th. ” We start today’s show off with a song from 1986, it was number 1 hit from Prince, the cooler part, the number 2 song was “Eternal Flame,”, which he wrote and gave to the Bangles.. here’s “Kiss”

From 1987 Belinda Carlisle “Heaven Is a Place on Earth” If you still have your Castle Grayskull in its original packaging, if you were ever weirded out by the relationship between Henry and Punky Brewster or if you've ever matched a pastel shirt with a white suit and sockless loafers, you’re in the right place; this is the 80s at 8, from 1986 Sly Fox “Let’s Go All The Way”
