Ed-FM was, as he put it, “rip-roarin’ and ready to go.” And, there was no finer way to start off a set of obscure 80’s than Strange Advance’s “Worlds Away.” How about Magazine singing parts of “The Light Pours Out Of Me” in French? If that doesn’t put you in the mood, check your pulse; you just may find out that you are not amongst the living and breathing.
Be sure to tune in to Ed and his “every show is a brain-teaser” 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.
