Tuesdays definitely rank high in my week. On Tuesday nights, for two wonderful hours, my ears are treated to the best obscure 80’s music they’ve never heard before. Ed recognized this week’s featured group Camouflage by opening up a blistering set with their song “The Great Commandment.” It is always great to hear Vis-à-Vis, especially the fabulous track “I Am The Night (Colour Me Black).” (Watch this space for more on Rude Van Steenes very soon!) And, later on in the show, a great extended version of “The Sun Always Shines On TV” – Morten Harket’s voice….need I say more?
Be sure to tune in to Ed and his “we don’t need no steenkin’ CD players” 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.
