It’s An 80s Thing #144 – Give & Take

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 whose first 3 US releases were all self-titled so to discern the difference the albums were described by the album artwork. We’re going to hear how Polydor signed Jon Bon Jovi and shit on him all at the same time and we’re going to hear how the Police kicked Michael Jackson’s ass.
