Stuck In Thee Garage #30: April 4, 2014

Much has happened in the music industry over the last 30 years, but there's no denying that 1984 was a banner year for rock music. This week on Stuck In Thee Garage, I played an eclectic mix of new and old in hour 1 and then focused on rock from 1984 in hour 2. (For a more in-depth discussion of 1984's music, check out the last two episodes of the Completely Conspicuous podcast: parts 1 and 2.)

I have it on good authority that the Stay Puft marshmallow man is a fan.
