Happy New Year! As we ring in a new decade, Ed-FM celebrated the best decade of music by presenting some of the rarest tunes you’ve never heard. Ed was a bit under the weather, as were a few of the chat room members, but we managed to party hearty all the same. Nothing like a few obscure tunes to make you forget your cares.
Be sure to tune in to Ed and his “never have enough obscurity” 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.
