We continue our “Close But No Cigar” series today with songs from 1981 that reached No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart but got no further. Tunes include hits by John Lennon, George Harrison, Grover Washington Jr. and Smokey Robinson. ‘Tis an odd show at times, but you’ll forgive us.


Author Steven Manchester, author of “Bread Bags and Bullies: Surviving the ’80s,” joins the show this week to talk about his new book. Plus, we go a little bonkers over non-existent David Bowie theme songs, Cocoa Pebbles and Imaginary Whiskey.


Our ’80s heroes are delivering a lot of new music these days. In this week’s show, we review new tunes by Huey Lewis, Ozzy Osbourne, Psychedelic Furs, Jack Hues of Wang Chung and Marc Almond. We also have the single greatest love story from the ’80s ever received as part of Listener Mailbag.


Our annual Valentine’s Day show this year marks the journey of love through music.

It’s our last show of the decade! Our annual Stocking Stuffer show returns to feature a collection of our outtakes from a full year of podcasts. Plus, we look back at 2019, name our favorite shows and look forward to another decade of Stuck in the ’80s.


Our listeners picked all the songs for this week’s episode – Sounds of the Holidays Before the ’80s.

Our infatuation with the late ’70s continues for at least one more show as we honor the albums released in December 1979. Actually, we just focus on “London Calling” by The Clash and “Christopher Cross” by … well, you get the picture. Also, the return of “I Want My Mystery TV Theme Song” and Steve


It’s time for another showdown on holiday movie seasons. Again we pit the plucky year 1979 vs. the stuffy but solid work from 1989. How will “The Jerk” fare against “Christmas Vacation?” Is “Star Trek: The Motion Picture” good enough to give 1979 the edge, or does Back to the Future Part 2″ put 1989


Oh, Canada – we’re sorry if you felt insulted by the previous Stuck in the ’80s episode, so we’re doing a Part 2 right away to honor songs with the same titles. In this show, we’ll highlight tunes by April Wine, Luba and Chilliwack (and their respective competitors from Berlin, Lou Gramm and Donnie Iris).
