Crackin’ great show last night. Ed-Fm did what most radio stations would never do – play the entire “Welcome To The Pleasure Dome” album-length cut. He also included a great, little-known Numan classic, “We Have a Technical” (we really did in the chat room), and followed that up with a rare Malcolm Burn tune, “Humans Can Talk.” So much obscurity, so little time!
Be sure to tune in to Ed and his “it’s right on the tip of my tongue” 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.
