Ed opened the show with an explanation of Socan (government music auditors) and some magic words: “…heavy on the Canadian content.” He was true to his word, and we were all in obscure CanCon heaven with a good 80% of the play list landing north of the border. It was fabulous to pay homage to the wealth of Canadian talent that went largely ignored by the mainstream during the 80’s. All of the artists featured here definitely deserved better.
Be sure to tune in to Ed and his “how did you get to be so obscure, man?” 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.
