1985 was a big year for movies! It was a year dominated by flying DeLoreans, Breakfast Clubs, Beverly Hills Cops, as well as massive pop artists like Madonna, Michael Jackson, Cindy Lauper, and Prince. It was also the year of one of the greatest movie adventures of them all! The secret caves. The lost map. The hidden treasure. The Fratelli’s. What an exciting time to be alive as a kid, back when you knew it was time to get home when the streetlights came on and just riding bikes with your friends meant the world was yours to explore...until dinner time at least. 1985 was the year that Austoria, Oregan got put on the map, the “truffle shuffle” became the newest dance move, and the kids from the “goon docks” took the oath that “Goonies never say die!”
On this episode, Tim Williams and guest co-host, Ron West, share their memories of this iconic 80's classic! They also share their favorite characters, movie moments, and behind the scenes trivia along the way.
