Stuck In Thee Garage #137: July 8, 2016

You can learn a lot from the past. For example, in 1981, our idea of hot new technology was the Sony Walkman. And the latest superhero on TV was the Greatest American Superhero, who I suppose would seem pretty lame in comparison to the superhero shows and movies we see today. Musically, it was a diverse but rewarding collection of sounds. This week on Stuck In Thee Garage, I played songs from 1981 in hour 2.

It really was a different time:
