Ed promised us a few surprises – and he was true to his word. Even if we had heard of the artist, or the song, he managed to deliver an obscure, rare version. The extended mixes and remixes were flowing freely, giving new life to songs that deserved more exposure back in the day. That’s what Ed-FM and Retrospect are all about – giving us another chance to enjoy what we should have been listening to during the best music decade ever. Join us again in two weeks (Ed is off next Tuesday) for the best 80’s songs you’ve never heard.
Be sure to tune in to Ed and his “bet you never heard this version” 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.
