Links Are Dead - I Know

I keep getting Emails from people asking me to re-upload the links and music etc. I think people are just getting to those particular pages so are not reading the reason for the dead links.

So I am putting this in place so hopefully people will read it and stop Emailing me about it.

The reason the links are dead is that my account with Media Fire has been closed with all 11,000 files lost. That is why you can not download the things and No I can not re-upload them.

Eventually I will start doing that again when I have found something suitable. In the meantime this blog will be information only blog.

Thank you all

I Love 1980

I Love the '80s was a BBC Television programme. It was broadcast following the success of I Love the 70s. It featured British celebrities such as Peter Kay, Clare Grogan, Dee Hepburn and Kate Thornton. The series was broadcast in ten episodes, one dedicated to each year.

I Love 1980 was Presented by Larry Hagman. The episode featured Pac-Man, Different Strokes, Roald Dahls Tales of the Unexpected and the movie Fame. One of the biggest stories of the year was the shooting of John Lennon by Mark Chapman in New York. But who shot JR? in Dallas turned Britain into a nation of soap addicts.

News items of the year included Unemployment reaching 2 million, British Leyland launched the Mini Metro. Philips released the Compact Disc player and an ice hockey player developed Roller Blades. Sixpence pieces ceased to be legal tender after 30th June and three greats of the screen, Peter Sellers, Alfred Hitchcock and Steve McQueen died.

While 1980 had number one hits from the likes of Kelly Marie to Blonda and ABBA.
