Recurrent Events Update: Steve Perry Attending Journey Rock Hall Induction, 'It' Remake Trailer, Legend of Zelda Chess Set

Welcome to the Recurrent Events weekly news update for retro pop culture headlines, links, videos, and more (...and that's no joke!) I'm here to pity any April fools who woke up to pranks and shenanigans today. Luckily I've escaped any such torture and am here to give you just the facts about this past week in retro news.

My pal Wyatt and I hope to continue our Memory Jogger journey real soon. Our next episode will be our early driving memories which ought be a fun topic. Look for that in the RD80s Podcast feed in the coming week.

Here's are some RD80s articles posted this week in case you missed them:
