81 82 83 84 is a retro-alternative show focusing on music I loved when I was an undergrad and volunteered at CKMS in the early 1980’s. Music will be mostly New Wave, punk, ska, early goth. Some experimental stuff too, with the occasional more-mainstream tune mixed in.
81 82 83 84 airs on Saturday from 10:00pm to 11:00pm, with a replay on Wednesday from 11:00pm to Midnight.
81 82 83 84 Episode 017: Merry Christmas!So not the most Christmas-y music but still a lot of fun tunes. A couple of friends told me that they’d like to hear me talk more during the show so I tried that out this week. Let me know what you think. Wishing you a happy holiday season and all the best for 2022!

And my nephew just “discovered” Brian Eno this week and is going deep deep deep into the stacks to learn more. Always a fantastic feeling to uncover great music from years past.
