My favorite band from the 80's was U2. Going to see the Rolling Stones Farewell Concert. Madonna was everywhere.

Star Trek reruns. Elvis Presley was seen here.

The return of prom night with hoop skirts and tuxedos.

Who could ever forget the new Walmart Discount Store.

Coke/Pepsi Contest. The minivan!!! T-tops.

What was it about and how long was it on? Not a test, just can't place it in my mind.

It was a science based show if I remember correctly.

In truth I remember the name (think they had a magazine for while, too) more than the show itself.

Pretty sure, no. The jacket was the only color I wore - everything else was black. Went with the hot pink hair.

We saw Prince in Milwaukee on his Little Red Corvette Tour. Vanity 6 opened the show, next The Time ( pre Morris Day and the Time, remember the song Jungle Love) and then Prince. They put on a great show. Next was Purple the Rain album and the movie, where Vanity had to purify herself in the cold waters of Lake Minnetonka.

Wow I thought I would have destroyed these memory cells by now. Didn't Cd's start to make there emergence then as well as cell phones?
