It’s an 80s Thing #5: …and the… Bands & Bay Area Bands

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 a song by an artist who rarely played it live despite its massive popularity because of his own distaste for it (and he cowrote it!), clips from a couple 80s TV shows centered in San Francisco, from a Bay Area Rocker, who according to VH1 is . . . um . . . packin’!
