Time to use the f-word



Our latest podcast is online and on fire. Click here to download the episode about the fashion of the 80s. Yep, mohawks, rat-tails, leg-warmers, Frankie Say t-shirts. It's all there and more. Plus, some really cool tunes from musicians who helped inspire the trends.

Also in this week's podcast episode, our first installment of Name That 80s Tune. We play a very short clip (VERY short) of an 80s tune. If you can name the song and artist, e-mail us at [email protected] We'll pick one person from the winning entries and send that person a TBT baseball cap as a prize. Tune into next week's podcast to see who won and to hear next week's mystery song.

Meanwhile, back at the Stuck in the 80s headquarters, our dedicated staff of hundreds are all sending best wishes to podcast co-host Gina Vivinetto, who will be taking a short leave of absence after ungoing surgery Friday to remove a tumor. She's in high spirits -- listen to this week's podcast if you have any doubts -- but if you can leave her an encouraging comment, I'm sure she'd appreciate it.

While she's getting her strength back, Times pop music critic and podcast comrade Sean Daly will be filling her seat. That's right. It's "boys-only" time for Stuck in the 80s. Heh-heh. Stogies, cheap bourbon, talk about ex-girlfriends and more. First topic for next week: sci-fi movies of the 80s.
