80’s Music Rules ~ More from Retrospect CFRC-FM ~ 09-28-10

Ed started out the night with a personal favorite – Worlds Away. And, things revved up from there. Every song was a joy to listen to – the best that obscure 80’s has to offer. And, lucky for us, that’s only the tip of the Retrospect iceberg. You’ll have to tune in to experience what’s yet to come.

 Ed won’t be back until Oct. 19 – he’ll be dancing the hula and just generally enjoying himself immensely in Hawaii. We’ll miss him, but he deserves it.

Be sure to tune in to Ed and his ”I haven’t met an obscure song I didn’t like” 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.

A trip to the Marsbar Theatre for a night of unequalled music is a treat indeed. David works hard to make sure we have a truly excellent visit, and tonight was definitely no exception. From the first notes of the first song, we were a rapt audience, and the progression through every song was a satisfying journey.
Be sure to join us tomorrow to make this journey your own.

80’s Music Rules ~ My Top Ten 80’s LPs

Before I embark down this slippery slope, I want to preface it with the caveat that this is a purely subjective list. Anytime anyone is asked to come up with favorite *anythings* the resulting list must be viewed from the perspective of my mother, whose favorite saying is, “Everybody’s taste is different. That’s what makes the world go ‘round.” Well put, Mom.

This was a difficult task, indeed. Ask any audiophile to pare their list of favorite music collections down to a mere 10, and the frustration level is sure to climb quickly. It’s tantamount to asking a long-distance runner which leg they’d like to sacrifice, or a hoarder which pet they’d like to keep. OK, maybe it’s not all that bad, but it’s certainly not a walk in the park.

After much consideration, I have narrowed my list of well-loved 80’s LPs to the very paltry ten listed below. This was a thought-provoking and extremely painful process. There are no explanations (excuses) as to why, only a profound sense of loss when imagining not being able to hear these treasures again. Yes, I know the Gary Numan selection missed the 80’s by a year….but it’s my blog and my rules. Feel free to chime in with your own list – I’m always happy to see what floats someone else’s boat.

Tonight was a special night on Ed-FM’s Retrospect show. He treated us to some rare vinyl finds. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again….his precious treasure hunts end up being our treats. Ed also played a great version of Gary Numan’s “Replicas”. Don’t forget that his North American tour begins here in FL on October 17. Get your extremely reasonably priced tickets and show Gary some North American love.

Be sure to tune in to Ed and his ”if it exists on vinyl, I will find it” 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.

David Marsden, master of free-form broadcasting, was in fine form tonight. I know my week will go a little easier having listened to his show both nights this weekend. Let me tell you, it was difficult to tear myself away at 10 pm tonight.

Again, if there is anyone that can cover on Sunday nights from 10 pm until midnight, it would be greatly appreciated.

David Marsden on the Rock.FM every Saturday and Sunday night from 7 p.m. until midnight.

Tonight was a celebration of Pink Floyd. David was still feeling the afterglow of a fantastic Roger Waters show earlier this week. Not only were we treated to a terrific set, it included much of Pink Floyd’s “The Wall.” Absolutely spectacular.

Join us tomorrow night for a musical experience you are sure to not forget.
