Post-80s Babies: Week 1 Playlist (Italo Disco)


Episode 1: Saturday October 12

Collaboration of the Week:

Dirty Talk – Klein & M.B.O (1982)

The end of each episode features an 80s-flavoured track from more modern times to bring us back to the present day. This week’s ‘Back to the Present’ Track is
