80’s Music Rules ~ Groundhog Day for Retrospect at CFRC-FM ~ 03-31-09



Ed-FM had to take care of some business last night, so the Retrospect show that aired was a replay of March 17, 2009. Many thanks to soccerfan for setting the record straight on the order of the songs played (Japan and Killing Joke’s order was inverted on the original playlist). Here is the updated list with the correction made.

Be sure to tune in to Ed and his uber-obscure 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.
