Have the summertime blues? Work got you down? Does it seem like you’re carrying the weight of the world? I’ve got just the cure – no mood lifter like some obscure 80’s music. Check out the playlist and tell me that doesn’t bring a smile to your face. If “Yin & Yang the Flower Pot Man” doesn’t get you spinning in your chair, you need to check yourself for a pulse. It definitely re-energized me.
Be sure to tune in to Ed and his “ain’t nothing like the real thing – vinyl” 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.
