I'm a child of the 80s and I take great pride in it. I've always scored above average on the various "80s purity test" sites. As a result, I have a particular fondness for the popular music of the 80s--especially the one-hit wonders that seemed to make up a fair amount of the Billboard charts.
One of the few local radio stations that I can tolerate (there are exactly four) has been playing only 80s music this weekend, calling it their "totally 80s weekend" and I'm loving every minute of it. Even the not so good stuff they play. Let's face it, not all 80s music is good.
I've long wondered why there isn't an all 80s station out here. I know they exist in a few markets, but I haven't figured out why we don't have one in or near the San Francisco Bay Area.
At least for this weekend, all praise Mix 106.5 FM!
Oh, here's a bit of trivia. I once owned the domains the80s.org and eighties-music.org (or maybe it was .net?). I never got around to doing anything with them so I let them expire. Now, of course, I'm kicking myself. I still don't have time, but I could probably at least get the ball rolling...
