It’s An 80s Thing #72 – Up & Down

It’s An 80s Thing #72 – Up & Down

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 about one of the earliest product placements in a music video. We’re going to hear a little Go-Go trivia and we’re going to hear yet another story about a singer who was not given credit for her vocal work until DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince stepped in. You’ll hear all of that and more in the edition of IA8T.
