We finally went to a place where nobody dared to go: Our tribute to Xanadu on its 40th anniversary. We honor the music - and the message - of the movie while discussing its many shortfalls and misfires. Included is an interview with Xanadu fans Don Fields and Ken Anderson along with a special introduction by Olivia Newton-John. 

Find Ken's "Le Cinema" blog here. Here's the website for the Xanadu Preservation Society.  

Stuck in the '80s is sponsored by The 80s Cruise. The 2021 voyage has been postponed to March 2022, but we'll still be there - along with all the original bands - for this amazing trip. Get $200 cabin credit for first-time guests when you use the promo code STUCK during booking.
