Welcome dear RD80s followers to another recap of this past week's court of retro royalty know as The Weekly Links! A side note before we begin...my work load has increased at my 'real job' which means I'm less motivated to write content at night. But if you follow RD80s on Facebook or Twitter, you'll still see 80s linkage every day. Plus, I've also tried to make my workday go faster by listening to classic 80s albums in their entirety on Youtube (advantage to now working much of the day by myself.) So if you see me sharing my daily soundtrack, I invite you to listen along and give me feedback on your favorite tracks from each album!
Another quick note, instead of celebrating Halloween this October, RD80s will be honoring the 30th anniversary of the A-Team!! Beginning October 1st, my pal Wyatt and I will be featuring a series of 'A-Team At 30' articles that will run throughout the month (like we did with Knight Rider last year) AND I'll also give followers an opportunity to win an exclusive 'A-Team At 30 Giveaway' featuring new and vintage goodies. Check back next week for details!
- Remember the 1988 film Heathers starring Winona Rider, Christian Slater, and Shannon Doherty? You could be seeing it again someday on Broadway. If you don't remember it, watch the full movie on Youtube.
- Old School Tim's latest interview is with Mark Metcalf aka "Neidermeyer" from Animal House who went on to appear in the 80s cop drama Hill Street Blues and also Twisted Sister's 'We're Not Gonna Take It' music video.
