When driving around in The Wife’s car, we often enjoy listening to her SiriusXM radio thingie. Most often we seem to end up on the 80s Channel, because that’s the stuff that we grew up with, and they often play quite a bit of somewhat obscure stuff along with the “big hits”. It’s not just “Walkin’ On Sunshine” or “Come On Eileen” all the time. And what’s really cool about that is that the shows are often hosted by the original VJs from MTV. (The ones that remain, anyway — JJ Johnson passed away ten years ago, sadly.)
Anyhow, for those who may have formative memories from that period, who was your favorite?
Refreshing the memory, we have here, from left to right: Alan Hunter, Martha Quinn, Mark Goodman, Nina Blackwood, and JJ Johnson. My personal favorite? A toss-up between Nina Blackwood and JJ Johnson.
