Every Friday at 3:00 P.M. we kick off 'Feel Good' 80s Weekends.

We're talking all of the artists that inspired lace gloves, parachute pants, leg warmers and big hair. The fashions sometimes make their way back around, but the music from the 80s never goes out of style.

Remember, we can go with you everywhere with the MY 105.3 App, enable the Alexa skill, or stream us through your Google speaker. If you're streaming the app, you can use your Bluetooth to listen on your portable outdoor speaker. That's actually my go-to when I'm grilling. I have a boom box type speaker with cup holders and it even has wheels!

Then & Now - Evansville's Washington Square Mall Through the Years

Evansville is home to a lot of unique buildings including the first enclosed retail shopping center in Indiana. Yes, our very own Washington Square Mall was the place to be when it opened in 1963. If you walk through the mall today, you would never guess how alive the shops were, even through the 1980s. Enjoy this walk down memory lane I've put together, and maybe someday there will be new life inside 5011 Washington Ave.

LOOK: Things from the year you were born that don't exist anymore

The iconic (and at times silly) toys, technologies, and electronics have been usurped since their grand entrance, either by advances in technology or breakthroughs in common sense. See how many things on this list trigger childhood memories—and which ones were here and gone so fast you missed them entirely.
