Remember 1982 for a chance to win 1982 by Jian Ghomeshi

1982-cover.jpg In 1982, Prince William was born, the Ocean Ranger sank and Michael Jackson released Thriller. It was also the year that CBC host Jian Ghomeshi was a 14-year-old trying to impress an older girl with his taste in music and new wave style. It's this year Ghomeshi chronicles in his new memoir, aptly titled 1982

In honour of the book's release, Ghomeshi decided to turn the tables on fellow Canadian music fans and ask them where they were in 1982 — and what they were listening to at the time.
