80’s Music Rules ~ More from Retrospect CFRC-FM ~ 08-25-09


What an incredible show. Ed-FM promised uber-obscure because it was a SOCAN night. He would have to do extra paperwork, so why not return the favor to the folks at the other end of the red tape? Although some of the artists were familiar, the tracks were not. Ed put together a searing hot set and even included something by my personal faves, the Abecedarians. My hat is off to the master of rare.

Be sure to tune in to Ed and his “how do you spell ‘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.

  2. I have Nyet Nyet Soviet bb Gabor, Blue Peter Video Verite, Toby Swann Somewhere Over the Rainbow and The Extras Circular Impression. I probably have the English Beat somewhere in vinyl or cassette…lol. I have been listening to this at my work today.



  3. Hey ((((((((Moe))))))))

    What better way to work than to listen to some wonderfully obscure 80’s music? I can’t think of a more work-friendly atmosphere (she said, while listening to her “80’s Gems” playlist on her iPod). 🙂
