Giggles Radio - 1984 // The audio biography returns with another in depth year in review

Published by Alex Andronov

We're back baby!

Giggles Radio fires up it's Macintosh and sets the system clock back to 1984 which was the computer was launched. It was also the year of the first untethered moon walk, Beverly Lynn Burns became the first woman Boeing 747 captain in the world, Svetlana Savitskaya became the first woman to perform a space walk, the space shuttle Discovery had it's maiden voyage and the Andronovs moved across the street.

So join host Alex Andronov as he features a year from his life and plays the songs that either came out in that year or he experienced for the first time in that year. It's his Audio-graphy.

Join us for 3 hours (ish) of music, chit chat and random biographical information from 3pm.

    Do you have an account? That's probably why you don't get any and I get millions.

  • Do you have an account? That's probably why you don't get any and I get millions.

    There was a lot of Saxophone in the 80s, maybe a little too much toward the end

  • yeah. I was going to pick something tiny, but that would be mean. Poor Andrew.

    Having looked it up... The riff is actually Georges of course... But allegedly it was the first song that was written by Wham before they were signed so there was no evidence of who did the work.

  • Having looked it up... The riff is actually Georges of course... But allegedly it was the first song that was written by Wham before they were signed so there was no evidence of who did the work.

    So great to see such a happy family. :)

  • Ohhh, that was 1984. That's one of my two songs off the list then. But surely, surely, the last song has to be spot-on. :D

  • Epic song

  • Nina will decide when you'll do this again.

  • you tweet about goldfish.

  • Footloose :)

  • Ooops forgot I requested it in part B.... Sorry, Jacquie...

    (She mentioned it...)

  • I'm worried... I know It's a great song... but is it your great song...

    it WASN'T! :O

    mind you, it's still a good choice. :)

    i was waiting for Footloose and The Heat Is On.

  • I have awful buffering and it is all ustream's fault. I have shut down everything else and the cpu is still hitting a hundred on spikes. If I pause the video the cpu sits around 5% but as soon as I press play it starts spiking again. I have shut down everything else including things like skype that run in the background and the show is still unwatchable. I tried watching it in the dashboard and the spikes are not just as bad but the buffering is. So I am going to have to give up on the show today

    I thought it's be Eurythmics

    for Steven

  • Sorry, Journeyer... Blame my mistaken belief that this song was from Romancing teh Stone, one of the few movies that Jac and I see regulary....

  • Even on the Lo-Fi stream? I've only buffered once on it

    Was buffering earlier, but it got better at the halfway mark.

  • Sweet Dreams? That would've been a good sendoff too.

    Wrong year

    Wiki says

    4 January 1983 (U.K.)
