80’s Music Rules ~ More from Retrospect CFRC-FM ~ 03-15-11

A family emergency prevented me from listening to Ed’s show last night. Ed was kind enough to send me the playlist so I could post it here. It was a banner night, for sure. Not only did he put on a superb show, he was being filmed by his (day job) employer as part of a company documentary on what their employees do outside of the job. How exciting! I also want to send my personal thanks for all of the well wishes, and also for Gary Numan’s “Metal,” which I assume was from the “Live At Brixton” super-fantastic album.

Be sure to tune in to Ed and his ”not gonna quit my day OR night job” 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.

  1. Hey guys, thanks for keeping that music alive. Here’s an interesting story for you.

    Last night Gowan played Club Soda in Montreal. I was the opening act for him. They obviously remember the 80’s in Montreal because the house was packed and very appreciative.

    Here’s the interesting bit: back in the 80’s when I was nominated “Most Promising Male Vocalist” in the nationally televised CASBY awards, Gowan was the one who actually won. It was cool to finally share the bill with him! He’s still an amazing performer,

    BTW. I’d like to encourage people to check out my website to see the music I’ve been doing since the 80’s, especially my new ROCKHILL CD. Fans of Miracle will probably like STARVED. You can see the video on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AEWc9n9xC64


  2. Thank you for sharing that with us, Benjamin! It’s an honor to have you stop by. Will visit your site – thanks for the link.

    All the best,


  3. Cool! I was viewing your myspace page last week. Love the video and great to see you still putting out fantastic music.
