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 a song that inspired many parents to name their daughters after it, only to have the Daily Mail describe it as a career killer in 2013. We’re going to hear where Chez Nous was located and why it is no more, and we’re going to hear from a band who is touring to support the 40th anniversary of a landmark album for a band. You’ll hear all of that and more in this edition of IA8T. Today’s trivia question, I have a problem with the math around that 40th anniversary, can you guess why?
