Martha Quinn served as host, and a parade of decade-appropriate celebs, including Kris Jenner, Corey Feldman and Harry Hamlin, rubbed elbows with fans.

Boy George and Culture Club performed a tribute to David Bowie; Springfield was joined onstage for "Jessie's Girl" by Cody Simpson. Afterward, everyone grabbed their Walkmans and boarded Bob Pittman's jet for a trip to Molly Ringwald's afterparty.

             

The event, which was streamed and broadcast live on iHeart stations nationwide, will be broadcast as a DirecTV special on 3/18 on the AT&T Audience Network and U-verse.
