1988 was a politically active year with indictments handed down in the Iran-Contra affair, a presidential election in which George HW Bush beats out Michael Dukakis, and the election of Sonny Bono as the new mayor of Palm Springs.

Huey Lewis and The News: “Sports”..30 Years Of Musical Memories

Standard

Huey Lewis and The News put out a record (as we called them back in the day) called Sports. It was their third album and the one that made them global superstars. It was loaded with hits. “Heart and Soul”, “The Heart of Rock and Roll”, “I Want A New Drug”, “If This Is It” are all awesome songs that have stood the test of time.

It was a Billboard number one record and went platinum 7 times. I love it because its rock with some blues influences. This was the music I grew up listening to. I was 14 in 1983 Huey Lewis and The News were a huge part of the soundtrack of my life. 

1982

Standard

1982 which was a totally awesome year for me was 30 years ago. I am truly sad because of that fact. Where has time gone? I feel kind of ancient. At times I long for those days but I really love what I have now.
