Yep, we're bringing back all of the '80s hits you love this Memorial Day weekend on KVKI! Our Feel-Good '80s weekend begins Friday, May 28th, 2021 at 3 pm and we'll keep the totally awesome tunes rolling through Memorial Day Monday, May 31st, 2021, at 7 pm with Delilah.

Are you ready to revisit the decade that brought us the Trapper Keeper, the Rubic's Cube, and Members-Only jackets? We sure are! In fact, we may break out the AquaNet just for fun to celebrate!

It's hard to believe, but the '80s were when home computers were invented and a movie star *gasp* aka Ronald Reagan was sworn in as the 40th President of the United States. Music and fashion were all the rage and we watched shows like Growing Pains, Roseanne, Cheers, and Facts of Life. We also fell in love with Mollie Ringwald, the Coreys (Haim and Feldman), and the '80s version of the 'Rat Pack,' including Rob Lowe, Emilio Estevez, Demi Moore, Judd Nelson, Andrew McCarthy, and Ally Sheedy.

In the '80s we played the Atari 2600, had a collection of scratch and sniff stickers, and sported a Swatch watch. We also wore leg warmers, multiple layers of socks, and tight-rolled our jeans. What were we thinking?!?!? We idolized artists like Madonna, Prince, Michael Jackson, and Duran Duran.

Don't miss it when we serve all this pop-culture fun up for you on a platter this weekend as KVKI celebrates Memorial Day weekend with wall-to-wall '80s super hits. And don't forget, where ever your travels take you this holiday weekend, take 96.5 KVKI with you using the free KVKI App.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
