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.
