It’s An 80s Thing #96 – Wild & Crazy, part II

It’s An 80s Thing #96 – Wild & Crazy, part II

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 only British band to have a #1 hit in the US without ever charting in any capacity in the UK. We’re going to hear the band with the distinction of being the only British artist to have a No. 1 hit in the United States while never charting in the UK and we’re going to hear from a pair of a pair of brothers! You’ll hear all of that and more in this edition of IA8T.
