It's been a few weeks, but the Totally 80s Podcast is making a comeback - and appropriately, their first episode after a short break is about '80s comebacks!

Join Lyndsey Parker and John Hughes as they discuss the biggest career revivals and reinventions in pop music across the decade. And their guest is equally fitting: Michael Des Barres has worked as a musician (Silverhead, Detective, Checquered Past and - perhaps most famously - a live replacement for Robert Palmer in The Power Station), an actor (with star turns in everything from MacGyver to Mulholland Drive) and a radio DJ (currently a host with Little Steven's Underground Garage on SiriusXM).

Together, the three talk about artists making triumphant returns in the '80s (often with the help of MTV), from Tina Turner to Nile Rodgers. Give a listen here or wherever you get your podcasts!
