Looking for something smooth for your afternoon listening? Set sail with the Totally 80s Podcast for the first in a two-part chat about that beloved genre of yacht rock.

Your crew will be hosts Lyndsey Parker and John Hughes alongside two yacht rock raconteurs: Mara Kuge, founder of Superior Music Publishing and host of Los Angeles' monthly Soft Rock Sunday event; and "Hollywood" Steve Huey, host of the acclaimed Yacht Rock comedy series and co-host of the Beyond Yacht Rock podcast. Together, these four will navigate one of the most turbulent seas out there: what is yacht rock, anyway? From there, it'll be a discussion of some of the genre's greatest practitioners, including Kenny Loggins, Michael McDonald, Christopher Cross and many more.
