Fred Durso, Jr. has spent decades obsessing over one decade in particular. He’s currently fighting the good fight as an award-winning journalist working in the nonprofit sector. Music from the ’80s gives him the optimistic jolt needed to ward off any negativity that may try to bring him down (on most days, that is). He is currently on a personal quest to live out the themes and/or lyrics of his favorite ’80s songs. (Read his first post for details.) Fred resides in Boston. Share your love of his favorite decade or any comments on this blog by emailing him.
