80’s Music Rules ~ More from Retrospect CFRC-FM ~ 04-07-09



How great to hear Ed-FM back live on the airwaves after his absence last week! Ed made it up to his listeners by providing a scorching set that included the likes of Clan of Xymox, Eva Everything, Hilary, and A Split Second. He also dedicated Altered Image’s “Happy Birthday” to soccerfan and gave shout-outs to him, Ralphd, and me. A fabulous time was had by all. My only complaint is that the two-hour set flew by. Why doesn’t a day at work move that fast?


Be sure to tune in to Ed and his “cooking with gas” 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. Another superb show by Ed that made up for his absence last week. Thanks to Ed and you, Miss Parker, for the birthday shout out to me.

    Ah, Clan Of Xymox. Is that the same band as Xymox? The only Xymox song I have ever heard is “Scum”.

    I agree with you, Miss Parker, those two hours are blazing fast between 8 and 10 pm on Tuesday night!



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

    According to the Clan of Xymox site, they were originally known as “Xymox.” Speaking of blazing fast, there’ll be another 5 hours tonight via the Marsbar Theatre that will streak by in record time, again. Hope to see you there!



  3. Thanks for the feedback and your support. Clan of Xymox and Xymox are one and the same. Have a great Easter and I hope to hear from you Tuesday.



  4. Hey ((((Blair)))))

    Thanks for the kind words – missed seeing you this week in the theatre. Happy Easter!



  5. Hiya ((((Ed))))

    Looking forward to another fabulous set on Tuesday night. All the best to you and hope you are havig a great weekend and a Happy Easter!
