Most of what Ed plays cannot be heard on mainstream radio. They don’t have the nerve to stray outside of a safety zone of boring, formulaic music. Ed’s not afraid to take us to the “dark side,” entertaining us with, in many cases, things we’ve never heard before. If it lounges in a bargain bin somewhere, it’s fair game for Ed-FM. Retrospect, and our listening pleasure. Ed will be away the next couple of weeks, but he’s sure to return with enough obscurities to make up for his absence.
Be sure to tune in to Ed and his ”come on over to the dark side” 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.
