For DJs John and Heidi Small, the 1980s was a decade of glowing, positive pop music. Songs like Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin,’ ” Elton John’s “I’m Still Standing” and Twisted Sister’s “We’re Not Gonna Take It” all center on a theme of can-do enthusiasm.
On this week’s Here & Now DJ Sessions, host Jeremy Hobson talks about that theme with John (@BigJohnSmall) and Heidi, a husband-wife team that run the all-’80s Sunny Radio in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
