80’s Music Rules ~ More from Retrospect CFRC-FM ~ The End of an Era ~ 5-15-12

It is with a very heavy heart that I write this last entry for Retrospect. Ed-FM is moving far from the CFRC broadcast booth for a work-related position. It’s a wonderful event for him, and a sad one for his listeners. We wish Ed-FM all the very best after giving more than 12 years to CFRC as Retrospect’s DJ, spinning countless 80’s gems that would otherwise never be heard over the airwaves.

I have known Ed for the past 4 years and he has added immeasurable light to my life through his friendship and his music. I predict we’ll be hearing him in some other iteration one of these days. Spinning fabulously obscure music is in his blood, and he won’t be able to resist the call of the turntable for very long. Godspeed, Ed.

Ed promised to make up last week’s absence to us, and he never goes back on a promise!

80’s Music Rules ~ More from Retrospect CFRC-FM ~ 4-10-12

Ed-FM was sharing the extended love tonight with several tunes topping the 6-minute mark (some even easily doubling it). That’s what’s so great about Ed-FM’s Retrospect show–even though you may have previously heard a song Ed plays, chances are you may never have heard the longer mix because commercial radio tends to frown on such things. This is the place to be if you love your music both obscure and extended.

Note – Ed will be back in two weeks, as work obligations will keep him out of the studio next week.

Tune in to Ed and his “longer IS better” 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.
