K-Tel's "Rock 80" this month on AiV

This is by far my favorite K-Tel album.  It introduced me to the Romones. The Pretenders.  Blondie. Pat Benatar.

This is K-Tel's Rock 80.  I got this album on cassette for Christmas in 1980 and wore that tape out.  I must say, it was this album that shaped my musical tastes in the early 80s.  I was drawn more to the new wave music and early alternative music thanks, in part, to Rock 80.

This album will be streamed in its entirety on Adventures in Vinyl for the month of May.
