An 80's Flashback with English Department Lecturer Dr. Mahin

English Department Lecturer Michael Mahin not only has some interesting theories concerning literature but can also explain why music from the 1980's still continues to draw the interest of legions of fans. Mahin explains, “Most ’80s music was utterly escapist. The ’80s never pretended to be something it wasn’t. It was indulgent, raw, experimental, but most of all, it was fun.” You may catch Mahin giving a Literature lecture at SDSU, in the latest San Diego Reader in the article "Can't Get Enough Journey", and, maybe most surprisingly, in his 80's coverband Neon Nation (available for hire for your next party, wedding or corporate event).
