Friday at 3PM, we kick off the Y-Loves the 80's Weekend! Then, at 4PM, Jay Bee will step into the Y-Back Machine and travel to 1988 to give you the top four songs from this week in 1988! You'll never guess what movie came out this week in 1988!

  2. Who Framed Roger Rabbit
  3. Coming to America
  4. Big
  5. Twins
  6. Crocodile Dundee II
  7. Die Hard

Well, crack made its debut, the first major virus hit computers connected to the internet, and the puff sleeve dress was everywhere!

It's also the year rent was, on average, about $400, gas was 91 cents a gallon, a dot matrix printer went for $189 and an IBM PC with 30Mb Hard Disk, 512k memory, and a monitor would set you back just under $1,300!

Remember, the weekend starts, as always, at 3 on your last few hours of work are a non-stop party!
