Lubbock: ‘Can We Get Awesome 80’s Weekends EVERY Weekend?’ Us: ‘….sure’
"Goose, I'm gonna buzz the tower..."
If it's our Awesome 98 tower, have at it, Mav.
You probably can't even count how many times you've seen Top Gun, or Ghostbusters or Clue ("Flames...flames on the side of my face!")
In other words, you're an 80s fan.
Trust me, we've had lots of comments from listeners just like you from all over West Texas, and one thing always seems to be the most popular feature: our Awesome 80s Weekends.
So, after many hours of thought and copious amounts of 35-year-old Bartles & Jaymes wine coolers (thank you for your support), we decided to throw caution into the wind and make every weekend an Awesome 80s Weekend.
See? They approve.
This means that every Friday afternoon at 2 p.m., just before you totally mentally check out from your busy week at work, we start the 80s party to keep you feeling good all weekend long.
However, since this is your music, we want to give you as much ownership in the music you hear as you'd like. Just download the Awesome 98 app here and use the "chat" feature to let us know what you want to hear in real time.
Admittedly, that's so much easier than waiting until sister was off the phone with her Flock of Seagulls-looking boyfriend so you could call the radio station and request the perfect song for your 80s mixtape.
In the meantime, enjoy these 80s one hit wonder videos.
You didn't know that Eddie Murphy could sing? Yeah...he still can't.
Whatever happened to Stacey Q? Well, Check out her story...
Would this have been a big hit without Michael Jackson for the assist? Maybe...
Not a big hit...but very popular among the New Wave crowd.
Just a fun 80's feel from these ska/new wave wonders.
From Rocky 4 (I will break you), comes another one hit wonder...
Enjoy the weekend!
Here are the top 25 hits of the ‘80s based on their overall popularity.
