It’s An 80s Thing #43 – The Sun & The Moon

It’s An 80s Thing #43 – The Sun & The Moon

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 makes Andy Taylor of Duran Duran cringe every time he hears it. We’re going to hear the British Pop GENIUS that never got the love he deserved here in the states and we’re going to hear the song banned by the BBC because it featured conflict in Ireland . . . and SURPRISE, it’s not a song by U2! You’ll hear all of that and more in this edition of IA8T.
