Eve of the 80s / new trax Feb. 1

A couple of my recent guests on the 80s at 8:30 have commented that they wanted to play something but then figured out it was from '79. I told them we only play 80s on that segment. Then I stole their idea with the thought (which made it OK to steal) that they were on to something -- a lot of the stuff from the late 70s DID sound like 80s music. So last night, it was music from '78 and '79 that to me signaled the coming 80s decade. And besides, it was fun music.
