Originally called "Jim's Nifty Eighties Page", the site began as one of forerunners to 80's fan sites. It first boasted fewer than 100 references, but with much thanks to the contributions of the site's visitors, the site grew to become one of the most comprehensive 80's lists on the Internet with currently over 3,000 Eighties references. And it continues to grow today. From the Eighties has been mentioned in several publications (most recently, the Toronto Sun) and 80's radio stations around the world, and has been interviewed, and has been praised by 80's fans all over.
In recent years, there has been an obvious 80's revival, as web sites, TV shows, movies, products, and so on have celebrated the decade. So From the Eighties has worked hard to remain informative and relevant. We offer trivia, discussion forums, polls, an 80's trading place, LOTS of 80's memories, an online radio station, the lofty goal of accuracy (Read more about our sources), with a lot more in the works.
