80’s Music Rules ~ More from Retrospect CFRC-FM ~ 9-29-09


I knew it was going to be a great night when Ed-FM opened the show with Armoury Show. We were also treated to a taste of Goth in honor of this week’s Criminally Underrated feature about the Sisters of Mercy, plus some fabulous barn-burners such as Cassandra Complex’s “Def Con One” and Data Bank A’s “Waiting Room.” Don’t recognize any of the tunes? Then consider joining us next Tuesday night at 8 pm.

Be sure to tune in to Ed and his “obscure is like a box of chocolates” 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.
