80’s Music Rules ~ More From Retrospect CFRC-FM ~ 01-27-09


Well, Ed-FM overcame some downright daunting obstacles to deliver the goods with style and panache last night. It seems some enterprising lowlife hacked the CFRC-FM website, giving me caniptions when 5 minutes after 8 pm, I still wasn’t able to tune in. A quick email to Ed-FM, an even quicker response (with an alternate URL), and I was hooked up. Crisis averted.

Have a look at the multi-faceted and diverse playlist and, if you see something you like, be sure to tune in next Tuesday from 8 pm until 10 pm. Treat your ears to a show that won’t disappoint fans of obscure, yet incomparably fabulous, 80’s music…that doesn’t suck.
