80’s Music Rules ~ More from Retrospect CFRC-FM ~ 03-30-10

With the specter of Spring upon us, what better way to heat up the night than with some obscure 80’s? What’s more appropriate for Easter week than with some Echo & The Bunnymen? And for all of you wordsmiths out there, Abecedarians – Ed knows what we need to spice up our week, and he supplies it in short order.

Be sure to tune in to Ed and his “nothing is too obscure for me” 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.

    Abecedarians – that was a new one to me so I had to Google it.

    1. The teaching and learning of the ABCs
    2. A music search specializes in rare and out-of-print cds from the 80’s and 90’s
    3. A US Post-punk Power Trio

    Nice touch tying it all together in one post.



  2. Hey ((((MJ))))) – Abecedarians is a must-check-out post-punk band from LA. They are most noted for “Smiling Monarchs” because it was included in the Hardest Hits compilation series that came out of Canada. I’ll email you more details. 🙂
