“Through the Decades”: 1980s with host Stephen Kallao

Glittery pop, old school hip hop, and new wave, plus the indie underground rock scene all emerged as a true force…in the 1980s. The diverse possibilities within popular music started bubbling up in this decade, and we’ll dive into it on the next World Cafe – Tune in for music ranging from Cyndi Lauper, New Order, and De La Soul, to the Pixies and Prince. All that and more, as we move through the ‘80s as part of this week’s “Through The Decades” series.
