Kent says, "Hosting 'Totally Awesome 80s' is an exciting trip back to a decade that was really fun for me in radio.  The music was great and life was good.  We had great movies, classic video games, the advent of CDs, VCRs, and the personal computer revolution was just beginning.  It was an exciting time and the music of the 80s brings it all alive again!"
