Broadcast News and Moonstruck were both released on the exact same day: Dec. 16, 1987. Both were Oscar-nominated movies with stellar casts. But which was the better romantic comedy? Guest hosts Jen with One N and Gayle in DC join the show this week to render judgement.

Plus full seggies and a special offer from Draft Kings. And don’t forget there’s less than 90 days to The 80s Cruise. There are still cabins available so come join Spearsy, B-Rad, Rick Springfield, Loverboy, Berlin, the MTV veejays and many more.

Episode 432: ‘The Untouchables’ Turns 30

How did we go this long in Stuck in the ’80s history without honoring “The Untouchables?” Maybe we were just waiting for the right moment – like the flick turning 30 years old.

Still, Spearsy and Brad in LA do their best to show why “The Untouchables” is still untouchable. The story. The city. The style. Here endeth the lesson.

Stuck in the ’80s is sponsored by The 80s Cruise. There are still cabins left on the 2018 voyage, featuring performances by Rick Springfield, Loverboy, Billy Ocean, Lou Gramm, Berlin, Mike + The Mechanics, Katrina of Katrina and the Waves, Thomas Dolby and The Tubes.
