80’s Music Rules ~ More from Retrospect CFRC-FM ~ 3-20-12

Hallelujah! Ed-FM is back. It’s been a long dry spell without our weekly fix of 80s obscurity, but Ed followed the crumb-trail back to the station, and cheerfully filled our ears with the overlooked, but fabulous 80s music we crave. Thank you Ed for all that you do…now stay put for a while!

Tune in to Ed and his “no such thing as too obscure” 80’s Retrospect show on CFRC-FM from 8 pm until 10 pm on Tuesday nights. Ed takes requests by phone: (613) 533-CFRC (2372) or email: retrospectcfrc at yahoo dot ca. Indulge yourself in some “80’s Music that doesn’t suck.” I guarantee die-hard 80’s New Wave/post-punk fans will not be disappointed.

Bobbi Style and Access 2 ~ The Story Continues

Last July, I reported on Bobbi Style’s brainchild, the Access 2 Foundation. In a nutshell, Bobbi is breathing life into his dream of providing disabled-accessible music studios to all musicians. Since July’s post, he has been tirelessly rolling forward (literally!), not only gaining financial and physical support, but also opening his first Access 2 studio near his home in Coquitlam, British Columbia, Canada.

Some of the funding is a result of the hard work of musicians that have committed to donating their time and talent to create tracks for sale. Proceeds are then channeled into the Access 2 project. Bobbi, himself a wildly gifted singer/songwriter who started out as a vital part of the 80s goth/new wave scene (and continues to record to this day), has loaned his enormous talent to several tracks that are now available for purchase on iTunes.

Do yourself a huge favor; if you haven’t already done so, check out the whirlwind known as Bobbi Style. Then, do two very positive things with your money: purchase some great music for your library, and help support a worthy project created to ensure that all musicians have the chance to keep our world full of the music we love.

It was a banner night on the airwaves tonight. Ed-FM had an intriguing announcement to share–on Valentine’s Day, anyone who donates $50.00 or more towards keeping the music alive on CFRC will get to spend the night spinning vinyl with him. If I lived just a little closer–oh, say, about 1500 miles closer–I would definitely be tempted.

Tune in to Ed and his “my kingdom for a vinyl platter” 80’s Retrospect show on CFRC-FM from 8 pm until 10 pm on Tuesday nights. Ed takes requests by phone: (613) 533-CFRC (2372) or email: retrospectcfrc at yahoo dot ca.

The calendar says it’s winter, but I don’t think Mother Nature is completely on board. It has been mild all over the
North American continent, from Canada, all the way down here in SoFla. Ed-FM added to unseasonable heat with some
hot obscure 80’s tunes. If he doesn’t watch out, he may just single-handedly melt the polar icecaps.

Still reeling from losing one of the best friends a person could ever wish for, I wasn’t sure about tuning in tonight. But Ed-FM washed away any doubt, and for two hours, the music made me whole again. Thank you Ed for all you do. The world is definitely a sadder place with Sistahmar’s passing, but you have brought some of the light back in with your warmth and your signature obscure 80’s music. Goodnight, sweet Sistahmar.
