“This week we revisit 1985 with another installment of the Monuments in Ruin Chronology Series! With the PMRC, US Senate attacks on music content, horrible keyboard sounds and generally bad hair and makeup, it may not have been pretty but it definitely changed the music world.

“Let’s get back to the 80s with the next installment of the Monuments in Ruin Chronology Series. This episode features music from 1981 to 1983.

Hang out with me as we re-experience them this week on Episode 71.”
