The podcast for this week’s Revenge of the 80s Radio show is up. This week, Louise Robey joins us for the second time.
Tonight, Louise Robey is back with us on Revenge of the 80s to talk about her upcoming appearance at the Chiller Theatre Expo in Parippany, New Jersey as well as her new music, upcoming anthology, the release of the third season Friday the 13th – the Series DVD and news on her artists forum.
Comedic actor Dom DeLuise passed away in his sleep last night. Movie fans of the 80s will always remember him as the great super-hero Captain Chaos/Victor Prizm in the first two Cannonball Run movies, in which he co-starred with Burt Reynolds (the two were a quite interesting comedy team).

Tonight’s guest on Revenge of the 80s Radio will be Louise Robey, best known for her 1980s dance hits “One Night in Bangkok” and “Killer Instinct” as well as for the TV role of Micki Foster on Friday the 13th – The Series (Season 2 DVDs have been recently released).

My conversation with Louise Robey leads off the second hour of the show.
Season 2 of the syndicated Friday the 13th – The Series TV show is now released on DVD. Friday the 13th — The Series starred JOhn D. LeMay and Louise Robey as the main characters: Ryan Dallion and Micki Foster (with Johnny Ventura taking over for LeMay in the third season).
The B-52s will be among the artists to be part of the NBC Network’s “Chime In” campaign. This is an interesting promotional effort by the big TV company as it brings in several musicians to add their own charms to the familiar “G-E-C” notes we heard since we were children. The B-52s are among the […]
After announcing a full tour to start in 2007 and playing together into 2008, we all knew it would eventually have to end.
