A little 4D travel trip was the perfect way to spend a raw, wet Saturday morning and so off we went to 1982 with the faster than light tachyon windshield wipers slapping time. Our journey into the past was uneventful and paradox free (although we were sorely tempted to grab a Matchbox 20 car set (original package!) for the grandson.) We kept our hands inside the chronal field and settled for a nice blend of the year's finest tunes. Wendy Rice, Flashback's first hostess, gave us a report on TV shows that debuted 36 years ago, and we also got the inside scoop on the Jupiter Effect, financial numbers and those who passed away. Here's the playlist:
