80’s Music Rules ~ More from Retrospect CFRC-FM ~ 01-26-10

It was a banner night for obscurities. Ed-FM started the night with a great mix by Vis-à-Vis, then quickly switched gears into five fantastic songs that unfortunately had a very short shelf life back in the day. Ed breathed life into the criminally obscure, while we were feasting our ears. It does not get any better than this – trust me.

Be sure to tune in to Ed and his “just you try to name that one” 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.

  1. Heh heh another good one. MP3 playlist simularities – #8 some yello, #11, #12, #13, #14, #15, #16 and #17 – I have Nyet Nyet Soviet and Metropolitan Life. I seem to be fairing well in the obscure. Have a great week and I will see you around the airwaves.

    take care,

    I’m pretty much in the same boat as you – have other selections by the same artists, but have never heard the ones Ed-FM played Tuesday night. It’s always great to see another side of artists who are erroneously known as “one-hit wonders.” That bugs me about my absolute fave Gary Numan – he continues to record today – far superior stuff than “Cars” or “Are Friends Electric,” but so many people are not aware of it.

    Yeah – our electrons are bound to crash into one another on the Interwebs. 🙂 All the best to you!
