“We play only the hits from the ’80’s — the songs people who grew up in that era will instantly recognize and remember,” said Valentino who noted some of his wilder ’80s memories are best left back in the decade that brought us neon clothing, big hair and shoulder pads. “While there is a lot of great music out there today, nothing can compare to the songs from the ’80s.”
To get things moving, DJ Kyle Blessing from Y106.5 FM will be spinning tunes from the likes of Michael Jackson, Prince, Madonna and other ’80s mainstays leading up to show time.
“Our show is all about letting go. If you have worked your tail physically and emotionally all week long and are ready for the best party you’ve ever been to, then you need to come see us,” said Doctor Scary. “It will be a time you’ll never forget.”
While Tongue ‘N Cheek attracts ’80’s music fans of all ages, for the Generation X crowd, the show will a blast from the past and totally cool.
“It’s my belief that the music from the ’80s is popular because it takes everyone back to a time in their lives when music was all about good times and parties. Letting go. I’m fortunate to have a job where I play one riff and the crowd erupts,” said Doctor Scary. “Partly because they know and love the song but secondly it takes them back to the first time they heard it. They remember the party they were at or what it meant to them. Nostalgia. It’s a huge part of our lives.”
