Call in to speak with the host
The TALKFEST WAYBACK MACHINE was in the shop last week but we hit the airwaves again this week as we continue our "SPECIAL EDITION" episodes where we revisit every year that matches our episode number! 1986: all the ads you remember, the news stories, the tunes, the TV shows...EVERYTHING! 1986. The year of the devastating Space Shuttle Challenger disaster. The year the world was introduced to a film icon for the first time, a slacker teen named FERRIS BUELLER. It was the year that the very first computer virus was discovered, called BRAIN. It was the year where HANDS ACROSS AMERICA formed to raise money for homelessness. It was the year that TV saw a turning of the tide in that drama became dominated by comedy in the Nielsen Ratings. It was the year that GERALDO RIVERA disappointed MILLIONS of T.V. viewers when his much touted Al Capone special ended in the worst disappointment possible!! It was the year that OLIVER NORTH was accused of shredding documents. It was the year DEF LEPPARD DRUMMER RICK ALLEN made his one-armed debut back with the band after his accident at MONSTERS OF ROCK show! Most of all...1986 IS THE YEAR WE'RE BRINGING YOU BACK TO THIS WEEK on TALKFEST! Of course we'll have all of your favorite weekly segments in "LOU VS YANA," "VOICES OF REASON," "THE LEPPARD SPOT," "LIVE WIRE," and YET ANOTHER very special edition of "THE RETRO REWIND" featuring a countdown from Yana! We'll have Buffalo Tom's "HOT SPOT" as always too! DON'T MISS THE FUN! THE WAYBACK MACHINE IS LEAVING FOR 1986 THIS SATURDAY AT 7PM EST..don't miss YOUR ride!
It's good to talk.
