Not sure where to stick the corsage
Shiver in fear: Our special "Prom episode" of the Stuck in the 80s podcast is now online. Click here to download it. Since the school year is nearly over, we thought we'd take this week to examine the phenomenon of proms in the 80s -- the themes, the music, the movies that were fixated on it. (And we snapped this lovely photo of Steve and Sean at their big moment.)
And of course, we share some bizarre stories. List and find out:
-- Which podcast host had a Swedish exchange student as a prom date.
-- Why is that crazy, uncomfortable suit called a "tux"?
-- Which host almost never made it to prom at all.
-- Why our special guest decided prom was a complete waste of time and money and turned down an invitation from a George Clooney lookalike.
-- Why one of the podcast hosts spent the night cleaning up vomit composed largely of french fries and pink champagne.
You don't even have to dress up to enjoy this podcast. But queue up a little REO or OMD and just enjoy the memories.
