With the last episode of the year, we decided to feature a few of the free gifts that have been offered online to fans by your favorite 80s acts this year (Joe Perry's "Run Rudolph Run" and George Michael's "December Song (I Dreamed Of Christmas)") as well as REO Speedwagon's "I Believe In Santa Claus" which was given out a year or so ago. Yes, they were all Christmas songs featured two days after the holiday. It just seemed right to close out the year this way.
As it was the last episode of the year, it was also possibly the shortest. Came down with a cold/flu at the end of Christmas day and was worried that I wouldn't make it through the show. For the first time, we also went through a rundown of all the 80s artists that passed on this year. Emotionally tough to do that but I believe we will make that a year-end tradition. Should be feeling better by next week/year. Happy New Year!
