The author examines a 90-day period in 1984 when sports milestones converged, along with pivotal pop-culture moments. From Michael Jordan's shoe deal to a historic summer Olympics, from music videos to movies, the high points are well covered by author L. Jon Wertheim. Chris Abell narrates in an enthusiastic tone, truly embracing the topics. He shifts his voice when quoting people yet doesn't try to imitate anyone. His approach brings contrasts that enhance the narration. The research and backstories are fascinating, and Abell more than keeps pace, varying his tone across the topics. Wertheim surprises with how much he covers, and Abell projects a genuine interest that makes for enjoyable listening. M.B. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2021]
