Star Time #46: Jump to It

Star Time's bias in favor of '60s and '70s material has become so blatant that I've decided we're just going to have what I call "'80s Atonement" episodes every four months or so. This episode is all hydraulic boogaloo, with a mix of songs that were actually popular in the '80s with the obscurities I'm still trying to spoon-feed you as much as possible. Also listen closely for my award-winning Michael McDonald impersonation.
