We set the radio time machine to 1981 for this week's Saturday Morning Flashback. It was a year of many firsts.
First year of the Ronald Reagan Presidency, first woman on the Supreme Court, first Space Shuttle launch, first Raiders of the Lost Ark film. It was MTV's debut and Donkey Kong was a new video game we loved.
The first year of the 80's provided us with some artists who were "one and done" as well as some stellar debuts.
