80’s Music Rules ~ More from Retrospect CFRC-FM ~ 03-16-10

It was a glorious spring-like day in Ontario and to celebrate, Ed-FM started out the evening with an XTC two-fer. For the next two hours the obscure hits-that-should’ve-been just kept on rolling non-stop out of the speakers. Imagine St. Patty’s Day Eve even more festive, decked out with tunes that our 80’s-hungry ears thanked us for.

 Be sure to tune in to Ed and his “better than a St. Patty’s Day celebration” 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. Aw Sond….I’m so sorry. I really despise DST and wish we could keep the clocks set one way all year.

    Glad you caught the second hour. Thanks so much for listening, and feel free to join us in the chat room during the show. 🙂

    All the best,


  2. (((((Sond))))) – OK, you will be with us in spirit then. 🙂

    Have a wonderful day and we will think of you.
