80’s Music Rules ~ More from Retrospect CFRC-FM ~ 08-11-09


Ed-FM had a tough time this week with Mother Nature – who seemed to be in a rage up in Kingston ON. Reporting a hellacious thunderstorm including close lightning strikes, Ed braved the elements and impending doom to bring us another first-class lesson in musica obscura. It’s a good thing, too; where else would you hear outstanding songs like Mittegeisen’s “Bestandigkeit Der Errinerung,” Mannshreck’s “Snap Jack Feiber,” or even Hot House Flowers’ “I’m Sorry?”  We are definitely grateful that Ed prevailed in the war with Mother Nature.

Be sure to tune in to Ed and his “hotter than a lightning strike” 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. Just a note to thank you for helping to keep the spirit of the eighties alive. To those of us who were there and to those who are just discovering it now, it was truly an incredibly creative time. No boundaries, no borders, the doors were open to anyone and everyone, sound and vision just kept blowing those doors open even further. Keep it coming and thanks

  2. Thank you so much for taking the time to write – Ed-FM really does his part to keep the 80’s alive by giving it life-support from his Retrospect show each week. Another place that plays fabulous 80’s (including Vis A Vis) is David Marsden’s program on Thursday and Friday nights from 94.9 The Rock.

    You were a vital part of the great memories that the 80’s hold for many of us and for that, we thank you!



  3. Wow, cool comment. MissP does a great job in promoting the music. It was such an innovative time, no Mac G5’s to edit the tracks. Old tried and true cut and paste of the tape to edit. This was true creativity at its best for sure. I think we will have to play some more Vis-A-Vis this week.
