Today you'll hear nothing but music from the 1980s on WFUV. The one exception to that is a set of your requests for the WFUV Question of the Day. For that we want covers of songs that were originally released in the 1980s. It doesn't matter when the cover was recorded. We'll spin that set after 9 a.m.
 
While you're here, please support WFUV for our fall member drive. Give now online or call 833-907-WFUV. Thanks!
 
Here's what we played:
 
The Bird and the Bee I Can't Go for That (No Can Do)" (Hall & Oates 1981)
 
The Ataris "The Boys of Summer" (Don Henley 1984)
 
Hindu Love Gods "Raspberry Beret" (Prince 1985)
 
Mavis Staples, Win Butler, Régine Chassagne "Slippery People" (Talking Heads 1983)
