80’s Music Rules ~ More from Retrospect CFRC-FM ~ 06-16-09


Happy Birthday Ed-FM! To celebrate his own special day, Ed was out of the gate at full speed. Some highlights included the album version of Altered Image’s “I Could Be Happy,” and a huge plug for Pukka Orchestra with their critically acclaimed “Cherry Beach Express” and “Weekend Come alive” – yes, we certainly do, don’t we? And did I mention a very rare live version of “Here Comes The Fool” by Simple Minds? Ultra-fabulous stuff!

 Be sure to tune in to Ed and his “kick butt” 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.

    This weekend, I am going to make a big effort to check out the dBs. You have me intrigued. It has been a crazy week and i haven’t gotten around to it, but what you’ve written has got me convinced.

    All the best,


  2. I hope you enjoy some of their work! I’ve heard bands I like cite them as an influence for years but was mostly only familiar with their Like This album, which isn’t considered their really influential album (but is still chock full of pop goodness). The first two albums though – great pop tunage and some pretty innovative arrangements, especially in terms of rhythm.

    Some of it takes a couple of listens, but I think its worth it. The five tracks from Like This that I really dig though are pop gold. 😀


  3. “She took his car, she took his bike….she took everything he liked.” 😀

    I’m listening now. Fantastic music – thank you so much!



  4. Hey (((((Willy)))))
