July 1988 Pop Culture: Dating Game, Aussie Bands & Cool Breezes
Our discussion of the pop culture topics in the July 1988 issue of Sassy turns into a wild ride, as Dave takes tough stances on overstuffed comic books, Pam fact-checks an item on Keanu Reeves's name, and a factoid about fireworks ends up in a revelation about pediatric dentistry in Saskatchewan in the 1980s. Watch It covers Permanent Record and Running On Empty, among others; then Listen Up assigns Jenny Morris the wrong nationality but also tells us about a solo project from a guy in The Smiths. Chris Young tries (and fails) to break the One To Watch curse. Then it's on to the features: Christina reports from the set of The All New Dating Game and delivers a roundup of Australian bands, before Karen profiles a very VERY young Chynna Phillips.
