It’s An 80s Thing #136 – Sun & Rain

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!

We’re going to hear Peter Gabriel weigh in on some weighty topics. We’re going to hear the unlikely track from 1985 that was used for the trailer to 2008’s Slumdog Millionaire and we’re going to hear the band that started out as The Toilets. You’ll hear all of that and more in this edition of IA8T.
