80’s Music Rules ~ More from Retrospect CFRC-FM ~ 07-21-09


He’s ba-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-ck!

Have we missed our Ed-FM? You betcha! This had to have been the longest three weeks of empty Tuesdays on record. Ed made it up to us in a big way, though. He came roaring off the starting line with a great Howard Jones tune, followed by some classic Simple Minds.

Speaking of whom, Simple Minds has a fantastic new CD out with a decidedly retro sound that will send you back in time like your own personal time machine. It’s called “Graffiti Soul,” and if you haven’t already heard it, check out some samples online, then buy it. It is a must-have for any serious 80’s New Wave/post-punk fan.

Welcome back Ed – thank you for a solid set that flew by faster than any other two hours in the history of the universe. You really know how to cook up a musical feast.

Be sure to tune in to Ed and his “chair-dance ‘til you drop” 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. Man, I wish the Screaming Blue Messiahs had recorded more music. I have “Flintstone” and the outstanding “Wild Blue Yonder,” but they vanished in the late 80’s. Hmmm. I should poke around…


  2. Hi (((Joey)))

    I agree – they sounded like they had so much going for them. If I find anything in my “travels” I’ll let you know!

    Have a great upcoming weekend (thank goodness it’s here!)



  3. Thanks Glen, one of my favourites by another great Canadian band. Joey, Yes the Screaming Blue Messiahs should have fared better than they did.

    Thanks again MissP for your support
