Ed challenged us all to put our obscure thinking caps on tonight. Mine got a real workout as I scrambled to identify the unidentifiable. Even Googling the lyrics let me down. Thank goodness Ed graced us with detailed back-announcing, otherwise some of tonight’s tunes would still be languishing in the alternate universe cut-out bin.
Be sure to tune in to Ed and his ”I dare you to ID this song” 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.
