For 10 years, Stuck in the '80s has managed to avoid this topic. No, not politics. Not fashion. Hair Metal. The one genre that most of our hosts are grossly and intentionally negligent in knowledge. But no more. This week, guest co-host Dave Dirt -- if that IS his real name -- joins us and takes everyone to school on the "glam …

Which Sheena Easton do you like? Version 1.0, 2.0 or Version 3.0 featured in today's So Far, So Good from the movie About Last Night.
"He who controls the action figures controls the universe!" I just came across this vintage 1984 "poseable" action figure of an Arrakis sandworm from the movie Dune. A very tempting purchase because I know a certain Stuck in the '80s podcast co-host that would totally nerd out for this. Only one problem.
