It’s An 80s Thing #125 – Music + Reading & Writing with Crystal

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 typified as “The most intellectually satisfying pop song ever written”. We’re going to hear a band with two Ottaviano (last name) are they are not related . . . and we’re going to hear a song based on a novel by Earnest Hemmingway. You’ll hear all of that and more in this edition of IA8T.
