On Safari

Safari? So Goodie! When I was young I never really understood why, when Biggins shouted out “SAFARI!”, the audience retorted with “SAGOODY.” What was a Sagoody?” Maybe it was a jungle snake? On Safari was an early Childrens TV show, shown during the afternoons from 1981 onwards. It was great entertainment after a long day […]

Stock, Aitken and Waterman – The 80s Albums

I decided to collect every Stock, Aitken and Waterman album from the 80s. Why? Because, for me, SAW produced what I consider to be the best music in the 80s. I wasn’t into the moody synth scene of the early 80s, and although I had a Madness, a Shakin Stevens and an Adam And The […]

Ashens and the Polybius Heist

Remember the 80s? Of course you do! That’s why you’re here, at an 80s site! And do you remember 80s arcade machines? (That’s a rhetorical question – there is no need to keep answering out loud from now on.) If your favourite film genre is “80s retro gaming heists”, then you will certainly be adding […]

Purple People Eater

This was a game in which you had to remove little plastic people from the mouth of a gelatinous purple people eater. It worked in much the same way as Operation, in that you used metal pliers to extract people from the monsters metal-lined mouth. In a way this is most 80s boys dream, getting […]

Wales Comiccon 2019

Wales Comiccon first launched in 2008 and has remained one of the main places I go to to meet what I class as 80s legends. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Comiccons, they are a complex thing to try to explain – They are an event where people can dress up like their […]

We Have A Podcast!

To celebrate our 20th birthday, 80sNostalgia is launching a podcast! Yes – 80sNos will have been online for 20 years as of June 2019, so we thought we would celebrate by talking at you relentlessly. This is the main reason we have been quiet over the last few months. We started production in October last […]
