It’s An 80s Thing #97 – Countdowns & 100 Million Club

It’s An 80s Thing #97 – Countdowns & 100 Million Club

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 two songs that were inspired by David Bowie’s A Space Oddity back-to-back . We’re going to hear from two huge bands that lost their lead vocalists back-to-back and we’re going to hear about how one artist skated away scot-free while another was punished by a telecom conglomerate after a live performance stunt that backfired . . . that punishment was swift and costly.
