Last night’s show set a new standard in “uber-obscure.” It left the chat room participants scratching their heads all night long. Ed was kind enough to throw us a Simple Minds no-brainer, but the rest – absolutely, mind-numbingly obscure – just the way we love our 80’s music!
Be sure to tune in to Ed and his “scorchingly hot” 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.
