flashback 385 Playlist:  Saturday Morning Flashback 11/12/11Saturday Morning Flashback 1983 was a great year for concerts: U2 at the Aragon, Roxy Music at the Pavilion, David Bowie’s “Serious Moonlight” Tour at the Rosemont Horizon, Talking Heads on a summer night at Poplar Creek, and an XRT Budget Show with R.E.M. at Park West, to name a few personal highlights.

I also recall trying to be a good aunt and tracking down a Cabbage Patch Kid – the hot holiday toy of ’83 – for my nephew. Now he’s a dad and I don’t care to count how many years have passed…but the music that year was fun, and so was Saturday Morning Flashback!

Next week: 1977
