What do you remember about 1983? Some of the top television shows were Magnum P.I., Kate and Allie and Dallas. Do you recall going to see Star Wars Return of the Jedi, Tootsie or Flashdance in the theaters?

1983 was also a year filled with great bands and great music including the first Heavy Metal Album to reach #1 on the Billboard Charts. 40 years later we celebrate that band and that album at Cohoes Music Hall as Q1057 and 1035 present Quiet Riot.

Huge list of "Cool Stuff" that kids in the 80's and 90's were all about.

Everything from the 80's and 90's screams "Cool!". Ok, looking back at photos of kids in their bright neon shorts and Hypercolor shirts where their armpits were pitted out, that really doesn't look all that "cool" today but if you were a kid back then, we sure felt like we knew style. Go through the list and see how many of these items you had in your room or used back in the day.
