The last time the Olympics were in Los Angeles, Bill Murray was busting ghosts, Bruce Springsteen was Dancing in the Dark, cell phones were the size of bricks (and tethered to the car) and VHS tapes were being advertised on TV.

You can still tweet us @KPCC using the hashtag #LA1984. Or do it the 1984 way and leave a message on our machine. The number is 818-797-KPCC (5722).
