    I watched the video today and it's such a classic, you have to play Paul Simon - You Can Call Me Al.

    How about a request for The Valley Road by Bruce Hornsby?

    I'd like to request Sally MacLennane by the Pogues. It's not a song or band I knew of in the 80's, but I became very fond of them in the 90's.

    All right, gentlemen! Here are your requests! \:\)





Great one PPP! This is one of the great songs of the 80's that seemed to come out of nowhere to be a monster hit. I like the video, too.
I used to love Paul Simon's appearances on SNL, especially him singing Still Crazy in a chicken suit.




Good song. Bruce Hornsby usually flies under my radar but I usually like his songs when I hear them.




This is a rollicking fun song. Who would've thought to mix traditional Irish music with punk rock? It works so well and Shane McGowan is a tragic genius.

    Thanks for the requests, fellas! And I want you ALL to remember, I will play ONE request from each of you a week, but you can request songs in as MANY weeks in a row as you wish, and I'll play all the requests I get! Now, it's MY turn... \:\)





Men At Work were quite a sensation in the early 80's. There seemed to be some turning on them after their initial success, and I can't stand some of their songs, but I still like this one.




I admit, when Footloose comes on, I sometimes get drawn into it. I like when Kevin Bacon is trying to tell Chris Penn about the new bands. This is a fun song.




Great choice! I remember the video well, too.




I don't think I've ever seen the movie this song is from, which is odd for a teen of the 80's. I've heard the song many times though.




Also from Footloose. This one has never been a favorite of mine, though.




Good choice. Hall & Oats had some good tunes in the 80's.

    Well, that's all for THIS week! Remember, if you would like to hear/see a favorite song from the '80's played here, make a request! I can't fulfill your request until I get it! \:\)


This week I'd like to request Desire by U2.
