August 1988 Pop Culture: Lou Diamond Phillips, Guest Critics & Baby River Phoenix

The pop culture coverage in the August 1988 issue is a bit slighter than we're used to, allowing us to get into nearly every bit of it. What Now tells us to get hype for The Fly II, Haunted Summer, and The Prince Of Pennsylvania, also mentioning in passing a comedy called Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, shrug. It also gets into John Stamos's new haircut, a Europe member's birthday, the unreleased Jon Cryer/Penelope Spheeris movie Dudes, the Amnesty International tour, and the dearth of women in heavy metal. Outside pop culture, we learn about "the crack" in the Sassy Glossary, and hunt down photos of the River Phoenix poster that the previous owners of our magazine copies obviously ripped out before selling them to us. To mix it up, the magazine gets a bevy of young stars it's recently interviewed, or about to -- including Alex Winter (twice), Paul Hipp, Alan Boyce, Johnny Depp, Annabeth Gish, and more -- to serve as guest critics in Watch It and Listen Up. And finally, Christina does yeoman's work in her write-around profile of an unavailable Lou Diamond Phillips. We hope YOU are available to listen!Visual Aidο»Ώs πŸ–Ό View scans from the magazine in this episode's Visual AidsCall The Hotline β˜ŽοΈ Leave your questions, comments and Sassy stories on the hotline at 720-SASSY-GOContact Us πŸ¦ @ListenToSassy on Twitter πŸ“· @ListenToSassy on Instagram πŸ§‘β€πŸ’» Visit our website ListenToSassy.com πŸ“« Email us at hello@listentosassy.comEpisode Notes πŸ—’ Full episode notes can be found on this episode's page on our site πŸ’ Die Hard on Hulu  πŸͺ° The Fly II clip 1  πŸͺ° The Fly II clip 2  πŸ‘» Haunted Summer on YouTube  πŸ€΄ The Prince Of Pennsylvania on YouTube  πŸŽΈ Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure on HBO Max  πŸ§‘πŸ»β€πŸ¦± John Stamos before his 1988 haircut  πŸ’‡πŸ»β€β™‚️ John Stamos after his 1988 haircut  πŸ™†β€β™‚️ Dudes screenwriter Randall Jahnson on IMDb  πŸŽž
