Episode 418: Rockers Gone Solo, Vol. 4

We started this series AGES ago. But it’s been so long that we’d forgotten all about it: Rockers gone solo in the ’80s. When we started planning this show, we actually picked singers we’d already honored. Go figure. Anyway, we managed to get our act together and chose  three more rockers who went solo in the ’80s: Dennis DeYoung, Jane Wiedlin and Jerry Harrison.

Also, full seggies!

Episode 415: Cobra Kai, Journey Trouble, Miami Vice and More

So much news to discuss this week: a spinoff of the Karate Kid, troubles with Journey, Miami Vice’s return to TV and so much more. It’s all part of our Eighties News Now show, which makes it triumphant return this week.

Plus, we have special news about the promo code for The 80s Cruise. I’ll spill the beans here: You have to use the promo code “STUCK” before Sept. 5, 2017, to get the price discount. After Sept. 5, the prices on the remaining cabins will rise. The ship is already 85 percent sold out, so the sooner the book, the longer you have to pay it off. Monthly payment plans are available.
