It’s an 80s Thing # 71 (an IA9T co-edition) – Music + Cars with Crystal

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 first number-one single in the United States to feature rap vocals. We’re going to hear a song by a group with a tongue-in-cheek reference to a New Zealand ghetto and we’re going to hear Crystal’s friend Patrick’s suggestion to help us connect this set. You’ll hear all of that and more in this edition of IA8T/IA9T co-edition.
