80’s Music Rules ~ More From Retrospect CFRC-FM ~ 2-3-2009


Ed-FM on CFRC out of Kingston, Ontario was cooking with gas last night. It’s normal for me to be totally stumped by two or three songs or artists (usually I can identify at least one or the other) during each one of Ed-FM’s spin-fests, but last night’s show was a masterpiece in obscurity. Ed-FM hit his in-your-face-obscure groove early on and it only got better as the night wore on.

Check out last night’s playlist and remember: If you like what you see, Ed’s show is as close as your Interwebs connection every Tuesday night from 8 pm until 10 pm.

  1. Fad Gadget and Grace Jones – great choices..

    Do you do requests, buzzing to hear..

    The Mystery Girls – Ash In Drag
    Animal Magnet – Welcome To The Monkey House


  2. Hi Wolfies!

    Are those songs/bands from the 80’s? Ed-FM is the 80’s obscurity guru and yes, he does requests for 80’s material.

    All the best for a great weekend!



  3. The mystery girls are a later era but the Animal Magnet track sounds interesting. It is difficult to find so I am very curious. I will see what I can do for next Tuesday.

    Thanks again MissP for all your support.
