80’s Music Rules ~ More from Retrospect CFRC-FM ~ 04-21-09



Last night we premiered the chat room for Ed-FM’s show. Just click the Chat Room link on the right (under the Rave and Roll graphic) during Ed’s Tuesday night show and join in the discussion about the great tunes he is spinning. Or, talk about whatever floats your boat. Ed entertained us with the best of obscure 80’s New Wave and Post-punk music, with a small dab of metal thrown into the mix. It was the fastest two hours that even Sir Isaac Newton himself could not have explained.


Be sure to tune in to Ed and his “too hot to touch” 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. That was a fun night and I am enjoying the chat room. It was very interesting watching the comments on the Yello track to see if anyone knew who it was. Thank you for hosting the chat.



  2. Thanks to Ed and Miss Parker. Indeed, a fast two hours that elapsed between 8 and 10 pm.

    I’m happy to hear many of the songs that were played last night. Interesting and well done mix of #2 and good to hear #1, #4, #17 and #20 (I love those Talk Talk remixes).

    Not a bad song in the 22 tracks that I heard!



  3. ((((((((Ed))))))

    I’m glad you enjoyed – I know we all enjoyed the once-again truly FAB show! You had me stumped totally on Yello – *loved* the track. So glad to be learning more about 80’s music all the time!



  4. Heya (((((Glen)))))

    I have to agree – there wasn’t a bad song in the lot. For me, it’s always a wonderful learning experience. So much obscure music, so little time! Thank you for visiting in the chat room. 🙂
