It’s An 80s Thing #51 – Fire & Water

It’s An 80s Thing #51 – Fire & Water

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 about the apartheid in South Africa. We’re going to hear a couple back-to-back songs produced by David Foster and we’re going to hear the song that inspired Kanye West’s “Through The Wire”. You’ll hear all of that and more in this co-edition of IA8T and IA9T. Today’s trivia question: Billy Joel references a variety of pop culture events in his song We Didn’t Start A Fire . . . Can you guess how many events?
