It’s an 80s Thing #16 – You Go Your Way, I’ll Go Mine

It’s an 80s Thing #16 – You Go Your Way, I’ll Go Mine

After providing data for hundreds of Soundwaves 10@10 episodes, Intern Steve steps into the spotlight with a deep dive into All Things 80s. Almost every episode will be two parts … each half a distinctly different subject from its counterpart … seemingly unrelated pop culture and music topics that (more often than not) will have a connection!

Today we’re going to hear the song that ended up on an artist’s debut solo album instead of what should have been her band’s 4th album and we’re going to hear from my idol when I was growing up who was a total dick when I asked him for his autograph . . .
