 1983 KROQ Top 106.7 Songs 21 to 11 | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 3113

Well in this time of social distancing we heed the words of David Bowie, "I don't want to go out.  I want to say in.  And get things done".  We do our best by consuming bagels and talking about haircuts, the German language and Weird Al.  It's Madness from these two Talking Heads!  Yes, both these bands are also on this ten song chunk of songs played in 1983 on KROQ Roq of the 80s.   May I suggest you follow along on our Spotify playlist which can be found on our What Difference Does It Make website.  Sign up for our newsletter while you're visiting. https://www.wddimpodcast.com/ --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/wddim/message

Did you see the video? Holly continually swats away the question.  Okay maybe she  didn't see the videos, but she knows the songs.  We discuss the most popular songs played on 106.7 KROQ in the year 1983.  This episode we discuss songs 30 to 21 on the countdown.   We discover some high school wordplay from The English Beat's "Save It For Later", the awkward publicity photos Tears for Fears seem to embrace and recognize the concern of the parents in the song "Institutionalized".  It's a good listen.  Check out the Spotify playlist and some of the videos discussed on our website https://www.wddimpodcast.com   --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/wddim/message
