It’s an 80s Thing #38 – Off & On

It’s an 80s Thing #38 – Off & On

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 have a first on any of my shows . . . I am going to play a Michael Jackson song (THAT I CHOSE OF MY OWN ACCORD) all the way through. You can pick your collective jaws off the floor. I can justify this because this was prior to his decent into plastic surgery, purchase of the Elephant Man’s remains, sleeping in a tube and overall inappropriate behavior and reported pedophilia. We’re also going to hear from a Soul Train dancer who got a recording contract and we’re going to hear a song from a soundtrack that never was. Confused? You won’t be . . . You’ll hear all of that and more on this edition of It’s An 80s Thing.
