It’s An 80s Thing #112 – Platinum & Gold

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 an artist who took a song he wrote for his band and successfully re-released it as a solo effort. We’re going to hear a song the Sheboygan Press described as “Not a very imaginative single” . . . what the hell do they know? And we’re going to hear the greatest Blondie song ever!
