Love is in the air, and it was definitely being broadcast from Kingston, Ontario. Ed-FM had his mojo going with a delightful assortment of obscure 80s, a perfect mix to get us in the mood. Who needs roses and chocolates once a year when you can have Ed-Fm live over streaming internet every Tuesday night? Wouldn’t have it any other way!

Ed takes requests by phone: (613) 533-CFRC (2372) or email: retrospectcfrc at yahoo dot ca.

It was a banner night on the airwaves tonight. Ed-FM had an intriguing announcement to share–on Valentine’s Day, anyone who donates $50.00 or more towards keeping the music alive on CFRC will get to spend the night spinning vinyl with him. If I lived just a little closer–oh, say, about 1500 miles closer–I would definitely be tempted.

Tune in to Ed and his “my kingdom for a vinyl platter” 80’s Retrospect show on CFRC-FM from 8 pm until 10 pm on Tuesday nights.

The calendar says it’s winter, but I don’t think Mother Nature is completely on board. It has been mild all over the
North American continent, from Canada, all the way down here in SoFla. Ed-FM added to unseasonable heat with some
hot obscure 80’s tunes. If he doesn’t watch out, he may just single-handedly melt the polar icecaps.

Still reeling from losing one of the best friends a person could ever wish for, I wasn’t sure about tuning in tonight. But Ed-FM washed away any doubt, and for two hours, the music made me whole again. Thank you Ed for all you do. The world is definitely a sadder place with Sistahmar’s passing, but you have brought some of the light back in with your warmth and your signature obscure 80’s music. Goodnight, sweet Sistahmar.

Tonight was a great night for those of us who love our music definitely 80s and out of the mainstream. Even if the songs sounded familiar, chances are, the versions were different. Case in point: “88 Lines,” which was the original (and somewhat rougher) version before the Nails were signed to a record label.
