It’s An 80s Thing #114 – Take The L (An “Over” Theme)

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 how Rollingstone snubbed Lionel Richie and shit on Roxy Music. We’re going to hear Joan Jett take a 50s pop gem and rock it up . . . and we’re going to hear the best thing Nile Rodgers made but didn’t sell. You’ll hear all of that and more in this edition of IA8T.
