Get yourself in a retro 1980s spirit in honor of WETA’s premiere of their new local special “Washington in the 80s”, which airs this coming Monday, November 17 at 8:00pm on TV 26 and WETA HD.
It was the decade of Reagan and Barry, the Wall and the Quilt, Go-Go and DC punk, the Air Florida crash and crack, a golden age for local media and sports.
