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.
