Tonight’s show was just the shot in the arm this world-weary body needed. Any playlist that includes both David Sylvian and Peter Murphy is a winner in my book. Ed shaped his show’s theme around the upcoming August 6-8 concert in Hamilton, ON, called Festival of Friends. It will feature, among others, A Flock Of Seagulls, Peter Murphy, and Squeeze. That’s an 80’s dream line-up. Wish I could be there to see it. Check out the line-up for yourself at http://www.creativearts.on.ca/performers.html.
Be sure to tune in to Ed and his “obscurity rules, top 40 drools” 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.
