Radio Show

  • Friday Night Eighties - ??, MN
    Friday 6:00 pm - 1:00 am. Just like the Class Reunion show, except longer and without the year-by-year theme.
  • 80's Class Reunion - Minneapolis/St Paul, MN
    Monday-Thursday 8:00-9:00 pm Each night they pick a year from the eighties and play music from that year. Tends towards the real mainstream -- lots of Journey, no Cabaret Voltaire. They do play the occasional Bow Wow Wow or Dead or Alive though, so it isn't completely AOR-type stuff. No metal, except Bon Jovi (which often go shelved with metal back in the days.) Recently began to play Milli Vanilli again, which is good or bad depending on how one views such things.
