Judging from the weather here in the so-called “tropics,” hell has finally frozen over. But to make that dark journey a bit more palatable, Ed-FM warmed our ears and our souls with his trademark 80’s obscurities. When was the last time you heard BB Gabor? Or Benjamin Russell? Or Elton Motello? Perhaps it’s time that you join us for some of the most obscure 80’s tunes you’ve never (or hardly ever) heard.
Be sure to tune in to Ed and his “we may be obscure, but we’re interesting” 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.
