Let the 'MSE 30th anniversary celebration begin

This week I did my first of three "special" '80s at 8:30 segments to mark WMSE's 30th anniversary, which officially is on March 17. I took the risk of playing cassettes of a couple shows I did on the station back when -- that would be 1981 and 1982. Next installment (March 16) will be a couple sections of the incredibly short-lived "music talk show" we called Talk Talk. Co-hosted by Divina Infusino of the Milwaukee Journal and yours truly. Anyway, below I give you this week's new tracks and then the '81-'82 stuff.
