We are back with a new episode of the Return to the ’80s podcast! After having technical difficulties, and losing a great episode about Ghostbusters (which we will have to revisit), we came back strong with some Slippery When Wet! Bon Jovi has recently released a new album, This House is Not For Sale, which was a #1 selling album. With this year being the 30th anniversary of the iconic ‘Slippery’ album, we decided to Return to 1986, and revisit it. And we are taking a guest with us on this trip – Scott from 80s Mixtape Autoreverse and 80’s Reboot Overdrive. So come check us out, and listen to our take on this classic album.
– We meet Scott from 80s Mixtape Autoreverse and 80’s Reboot Overdrive.

Rich man, poor man, living in fantasy
Here we stand / Worlds apart, hearts broken in two / Sleepless nights / Losing ground, I’m reaching for you
