We missed our weekly fix of Ed-FM and the best 80’s obscurity in the universe! Ed was back with a vengeance, fulfilling all of our rarity needs to the max. The live version of Metal was a definite high point of the evening, along with Stranglers’ The Raven and a very early New Order track, Cries & Whispers. If you weren’t with us, check out the show next week. You’ll understand why these are the fastest two hours in the week.
Be sure to tune in to Ed and his “back-announcing is a necessary evil” 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.
