Monday morning mailbag



Every e-mail to Stuck in the 80s gets an answer -- it's our policy 'round these parts. (Sorta like how Chik-Fil-A's drive-thru people say "My Pleasure!" instead of "You're Welcome!") Here are a couple from this week:

Hi Steve, just wondering if anyone covered the Queensryche show at the Tampa Theatre. I was hoping to catch your review. It was my first time seeing Queensryche, and I was rather impressed.  -- Brian

Hey Brian -- Nah, I missed that one. To be honest, I was never a big Queensryche fan. But a co-worker who saw the show said it was outstanding. These days there are so many '80s-era acts touring that it's hard to see them (aka "afford them") all. I skipped the Go-Go's for example, but got to Van Halen. Pretty sure you can count on me seeing They Might Be Giants next week. But anyone is welcome to write up a short review of a concert and send it to me. I'll post it on the blog.

I'm holding an 80s party and someone informs me that you can hire a computer which has 80s music already downloaded. Do you know of any sites please? -- Sandy

Wow, that's a great idea. There's one Web site I use all the time at work to listen to specific songs. It's, and it allows you to play songs and build playlists for free. Only catch is that you have to listen to the songs streaming over the Web. No downloading.

I'm not quite sure how I found your site or your podcasts, but as of two weeks ago I did.  And I'm hooked. Great shows guys! I noticed iTunes only has up to show #100.  Will you be placing more there or will they be featured exclusively on the Tampa Bay site? -- Gary

Hopefully iTunes will catch up. However, if you subscribe to the show via iTunes (or any similar podcast RSS feed), you will get each new show automatically delivered to you -- no what what number episode it is. Our next show -- episode 117 -- will be uploaded to iTunes on Tuesday morning.
