After a few weeks off Old School Sundays it feels like time to get back to some old school flatland and it’s always interesting to see where we all came from and how we have moved on. This week we go back to Bercy 1984 and a big show from RL Osborn and Eddie Fiola, always amazing crowds in Bercy. Old school heads will enjoy this one!
