80’s Music Rules ~ More from Retrospect CFRC-FM ~ 6-28-11

Another hot and sultry summer night. And no, I’m not talking about here in southern Florida–I’m talking about the heatwaves eminating from Kingston, Ontario thanks to Ed-FM.

Be sure to tune in to Ed and his “you only think you know hot” 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. I grew up in the 1980’s and to this day my favorite music is from this decade. Some of my favorite bands are New Order, The Smiths, and The Cure. They say the music you will remember the most is what you listened to between the ages of 9-19. This holds true for me as I was 9 in 1980 and 19 in 1990.


  2. Thanks for sharing that Ronnie…I’m a good deal older than you, but the 80’s is definitely the most important musical decade for me, too.
