The 1980s, the decade Americans witnessed the rise and deconstruction of the economy, the birth of home computers, and Ronald Reagan was sworn in as the 40th President of the United States.

In the '80s "Live Aid" helped raise AIDS awareness globally, America saw advances in genetic technology and the population growth surpassed the 1970s. Our favorite television shows included "Growing Pains", "Cagney & Lacey", "Roseanne", "Magnum, P.I." and "Cheers". The two longest-running number-one songs of the decade were "Call Me" by Blondie and "Lady" by Kenny Rogers.

This weekend KVKI is celebrating the 4th of July with wall to wall '80s super hits. It's the 'Feel Good '80s 4th of July Weekend' on 96.5 KVKI brought to you by Brittany Shepherd Realtor.

Starting Friday at 9 am and lasting all weekend long, you'll hear your favorite '80s hits from the decade that gave us the Commodore 64 computer, the fall of the Berlin Wall, and the crash of the U.S. shuttle orbiter Challenger.
