80’s Music Rules ~ More from Retrospect CFRC-FM ~ 08-04-09


Ed’s show was definitely crank-it-‘til-your ears-bleed (or the neighbors complain) fabulous. I am going to have to WD-40 my chair to offset the big chair-dancing work-out it got. The chat room was in agreement that the Proclaimers’ “Throw the ‘R’ Away” stole the show. A close second was Interferon’s “Get Out Of London.” Ed really outdid himself with all of his selections, but these two were outstanding.

Be sure to tune in to Ed and his “you only think you know 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.

  1. I’m jealous that you have more than two or three of these songs to do that! 😀
