travelingwilburys2 Playlist:  Saturday Morning Flashback 1/22/11
1988 was a Presidential election year, an Olympic year, and the year that U2 topped the XRT Listener Poll for the second time in a row with “Rattle and Hum”. (#1 in 1987: “The Joshua Tree”) Notable newcomers to the music scene included Melissa Etheridge, Tracy Chapman, Cowboy Junkies, and a group of very talented buddies that called themselves the Traveling Wilburys. It was the year the lights went on at Wrigley Field, and Michael Jordan won his first NBA Most Valuable Player award.
I hope some of the songs on Flashback brought a smile to your face!

Next week, it will be 1978.
