All 80s: Beef Jerky Time 10/4/06

This show is one of my favorite formats--all 80s music. However, I'm finding that an 80s show isn't quite as delicious as it used to be, because other, commercial radio stations tend to play a lot of 80s music too. It's coming back. So it's no longer like, "Man, I haven't heard this song in AGES" when you hear Murray Head or Rockwell or something. It's more like, "Man, I just heard this song on WXYZ last week. Whatevs." (Actually, I would be REALLY excited to hear some Rockwell--I've been looking for him in vinyl dollar bins for years. That and the soundtrack to Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo.)
