What a night for chair-dancing! Ed-FM successfully accomplished some serious vinyl hunting, and lucky for us, decided to share the wealth with his listeners. From the opener, a fantastic extended version of “This Mourning” by Canada’s own Chalk Circle, we knew we were in for a priceless walk through 80’s obscurity. In fact, the first four selections were rare extended mixes. Ed sure knows how to keep us spoiled and coming back for more.
Be sure to tune in to Ed and his “lube up your chair and rock in your seat” 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.
