It’s An 80s Thing #76 – Dark & Light

It’s An 80s Thing #76 – Dark & Light

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 from an artist who destroyed his career when the video to his biggest hit hit MTV . . . and the floor. We’re going to hear a song that bonded Crystal and Chris from Glimmertown and we’re going to hear the only 1980s British act to have three No. 1 singles on both the U.K. and U.S. pop charts. You’ll hear all of that and more in the edition of IA8T.
