    CLASSIC ALBUM EPISODE: Sports by Huey Lewis and the News

    Yep, we did it.  We listened to it.  Track by track. 
    Was the world right about Huey Lewis?    Does the album Sports deserve the cinematic spiel it was given in American Psycho? Do you want a new drug?   Is sometimes bad, ya know, uh.......bad? Also, - an 80sMusicExposed FIRST!   

    We introduce NEW music from an artist we love JUNATIME!

Adore!

Guys, I pay you the highest compliment by saying you remind me of the banter I used to have with my college guy friends. Megan, I’m so impressed by how articulate you are about the music despite not growing up with it. You three are just so much fun to listen to, and I love going back in time to re-enjoy this music that I adored then and still do now. Xo

Reliving my misspent youth!

I found y’all 2 weeks ago. This was my first ep and I’ve now gone back to the start and I’m up to Aug 80. Such a great show! Instantly accessible and your laid back style is exactly what my daily commute needs.

Oof

Good concept but cringe. This one is for friends and family only. And by friends, I mean that person you know who listened to the radio growing up but only paid attention to their favorites, doesn’t know how to use Wikipedia and somehow you don’t find annoying to listen to.
