80’s Music Rules ~ More from Retrospect CFRC-FM ~ 03-17-09




The leprechauns were all dancing in celebration of St. Patty’s Day last night as Ed-FM started off with a great song by Irish band The Pogues. Things began to gain traction with Cottage Industry, and burned rubber with “Heroes/Helden” by David Bowie. That one is really special to me, because it’s my favorite Bowie song, and somehow I had missed the German version from the movie soundtrack, “Christiane F.” Thank you Ed!


And that was only the tip of the iceberg….


Be sure to tune in to Ed and his high-revving 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. Hi Sandy,

    This show is on tonight (March 31st) too because Ed isn’t able to do the show due to job related reasons. Nonetheless, it’s a very good show to listen to again.

    Oh, uhmmm, #15 and #16 are swapped as I’m hearing this.


  2. Heya ((((Glen))))

    Thanks for tuning in again – I’m sure Ed will appreciate that. As for the list, thanks for the observation – I will go ahead and fix it!

    Have a wonderful week and see you in the theatre (probably on Friday).
