Episode 12: This Week in March 1984

Hey Everybody! Time for a new Return to the ’80s podcast episode! Today, Robert and Paul Return to the week ending March 10, 1984. We count down the top 10 hits from that week, as well as see what the top movies were at this time. And we take a look at what was on television this week too. We also pay tribute to Bill Paxton and Judge Wapner. There is also a new Play This, Not That. There were still no winners for Remember That Song, so it is still up for grabs. However, we had winners from ’80s Trivia, so we have a new question this week. Now, come with us, and Return to the week ending March 10, 1984.
