Ever wonder when the '80s sound really began? It wasn't on Jan. 1, 1980.

It evolved further in the '70s thanks to Roxy Music, David Bowie, Blondie and The Knack. We revisit a podcast we recorded five  years ago in this week's episode.

How did we go this long in Stuck in the '80s history without honoring "The Untouchables?" Maybe we were just waiting for the right moment - like the flick turning 30 years old.

39:14

Back in 2006, Stuck in the '80s was just a year old, but we felt fancy enough to honor Michael Jackson's "Thriller" album. The show, just 30 minutes long, was one of the first episodes we really felt good about when we were done. And not just for all the suggestive humor.

Now, on Thriller's 35th anniversary, we go back in time to honor the album, the artist and the episode we recorded 11 years ago. Listen for some familiar voices and names and just smile. 

Stuck in the '80s in a proud member of the CLNS Media Network.
