“On the latest instalment of, “Which Brings Us To…” we travel back to 1987 to talk coconut cream pie, a German teenager navigating his way past Russian air defences to land his Cessna in Red Square, Pat Lafontaine and the Easter Epic, the debut of Full House and The Simpsons and the last vestiges of greatness of Minnesota’s Prince and The Replacements.”

So, this first instalment of weaving through the the time, the events, the music of 1981 leans in a certain Mark Lane direction. Along the way I explore topics ranging from an Elvis documentary, What Would Burt Reynolds Do? philosophy, blue ribbons, Guinness Book of World Records, and potential reasons a teenager bought a black and white TV in 1981. Musically we tap into the most rambunctious, overly excited, messy and marvellous offerings from the year all in an effort to make one person happy.
