Stuck In Thee Garage #171: April 7, 2017

Nostalgia can be overdone at times, but there's nothing wrong with looking back from time to time. This week on Stuck In Thee Garage, I played songs from 1987 in hour 2. It was an interesting year, with the burgeoning indie/college rock scene, hard rock in its prime and hip hop about to become a major force. And you still had mulleted hunks with phones the size of your head ready to solve any problem with a paper clip and a wad of gum.
