2) Favourite musician/group of the 1980s?
Guy, L.L. Cool J., Klimaxx, New Edition and a bunch of others that I can't remember right now. I'm not sure which one was my all-time favorite of the ones I've listed. I could do better with music from the 90s.

3) Favourite TV show of the 1980s? A Different World, The Cosby Show, the Dukes of Hazzard, Oprah, Dynasty, Knot's Landing. Again, not sure if there was just one.
