David Sirota meets Charles Barkley 50,000 burgers ago and other 80s memories (PHOTOS)
Big pics below.
AM 760 host and columnist David Sirota is promoting a new book about the 1980s, Back to Our Future, with a March 16 book launch party at the Mercury Cafe, as well as an '80s photo contest on the AM 760 Facebook page. To get the ball rolling, Sirota's posted a couple vintage photos of himself, including one with a baffled Charles Barkley. See that pic and others from Sirota and listeners below:

Charles Barkley was known as the "Round Mound of Rebound" even then -- but he's gotten rounder and moundier since.
