Backtrax USA with Kid Kelly

  • Print

Whether we were phoning home or defending the world against evil with GI Joe figurines, the pop culture of the 80s truly defined the era. Between the world's obsession with the Cold War and scandals like the Iran Contra Affair that rocked the globe, it's a wonder we had time for any fun at all.

Did you know?

You can wind your Swatch watch, fill your mouth with Pop Rocks and Coke, and rock-n-roll 80's style with Kid Kelly every Friday night starting at 7:00!

Ironically, fun was what the 80s were all about. Not only did we rock out with our leggings and My Little Ponies, but the pop culture of the 80s brought us hours of fun-induced headaches with Rubik's Cube and big hair. By the power of Greyskull, we HAD the power, but most of all we wanted our MTV.

Whether you're still trying to clear the last level on Pac-Man or desperately trying to achieve the super-cool Sonny Crockett look, here at 94.9 MIXfm on Friday nights from 7:00 - 9:00, we have all the 80's music you love and the pop culture references you need to go back, back . . . back to the future.

From 9:00 - 11:00, Kid Kelly hosts two hours of great music from the "me, me, ME" decade with sound bites, trivia, TV and movie clips, and headlines! We're talkin' about the 90s now - Aiight? Every Friday night Kid Kelly is all that and a bag of chips when he's playin' the music we love from back in the day. Kid's pretty fly for a white guy. Spend your Friday nights with 94.9 MIXfm and they'll be rad to the max!

7:00 - 11:00 every Friday night on 94.9 MIXfm is a complete 80s - 90s experience!

Host Kid Kelly has received Billboard’s Air Talent Of The Year Award and Program Director Of The Year Award for 95, 96 and 97. BACKTRAX USA itself has been nominated for a prestigious Billboard award every year for 7 consecutive years from 1995 until 2001.
