80’s Music Rules ~ More from Retrospect CFRC-FM ~ 03-10-09



Ed-Fm started out the Retrospect show on CFRC with a touching song by Eurogliders dedicated to a friend who just lost his father. Then not long after, Ed dropped a nuclear bombshell of a rocking set that shook the walls for close to a half hour without a break. Left me breathless, it did!


As if that wasn’t enough, Ed decided to turn it up a notch and end the show on a chair-dancing, keyboard thumping groove with a smoking set headed up by “Wap Bam Boogie” by Matt Bianco. Last night’s show had to be the fastest two hours to ever fly by.


Be sure to tune in to Ed and his dynamic 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.

  1. Great choice of Danielle Dax – I gigged with her years ago, and our drummer copped off with her – very cheeky

    She’s in the movie Company of Wolves you know(in the final scene)


  2. Hi Miss Parker,

    Love the #1 and #10 tracks. I think I heard the Eurogliders track the first time I tuned into CFNY when I was channel surfing way back when. That EP of In The House .. very grand!

    Observing Ed’s playlists of previous shows, a lot of the songs I am seeing has blown my mind. Ed sure knows how to resurrect the great music that I heard in the eighties!



  3. Heya ((((Glen))))))

    So glad you are enjoying the show. Lots of songs are first-timers for me which is what makes the show a great learning exoeruence. Given your music knowledge, it’s fun to see what tickles your fancy. 🙂
