    A History: Van Halen through Van Hagar - (Part 3 of 3) Love Walks In with Sammy Hagar

    In 1985, Sammy Hagar took over the vocal duties for the mighty Van Halen. Eddie's keyboards had already found their way in to the melodies of Van Halen. There was no question that this was a different style than the origins of Van Halen, but would Sammy show the world what Dreams are made of? Because when Sammy walked in Love Walked In. Join us as we discuss the music of Van Halen from 5150 to Balance and give our judgment on which is the best of these two worlds.

A Fun Blast From The Past

What a great trip to the movies of my childhood! Love the hosts and the conversations with their guests. They really breakdown these classics and I absolutely how much I learn listening. Highly recommend. - Danielle, No More Late Fees

Childhood nostalgia at its best!

This is a “must subscribe” for anyone that grew up in the 80s. It’s such a great mix of music and film that seems to touch on every weekend of my 1980’s life, and those were the best of times! All of the episodes are home runs, even the ones that I’m not interested in at the outset. It’s been great to go back and watch a lot of the movies discussed with my late-teenage boys so that I get to share the best parts of my teenage years with them. I’m so glad that I found this podcast and I love sharing it with friends and then reminiscing with them each week!
