Back at CKMS after a 37-year break! I volunteered during my undergrad days at UofW (class of 1983). I now live near Dallas TX. My show is all about the music I loved back then (still do!) - retro-alternative, new wave, punk, ska, reggae. Saturdays at 10 pm - give it a listen.

81 82 83 84 Season 3 Episode 22: Eclipse

All that you touch, and all that you see All that you taste, all you feel And all that you love, and all that you hate All you distrust, all you save And all that you give, and all that you deal And all that you buy, beg, borrow or steal And all you create, and all you destroy And all that you do, and all that you say And all that you eat, and everyone you meet And all that you slight, and everyone you fight And all that is now, and all that is gone And all that’s to come  And everything under the sun is in tune But the sun is eclipsed by the moon

Roger Waters, Pink Floyd

81 82 83 84 Season 3 Episode 20: Art for Art’s Sake

Give a country Where I can be free Don’t need the unions Burying me Keep me in exile the rest of my daysBurn me in hell just as long as it pays

And here’s the video that Godley and Crème directed for Herbie Hancock’s “Rockit” (a song you might know best as the theme for “Beverly Hills Cop”)

 

81 82 83 84 Season 3 Episode 12: Some of the Best Alternative Songs of the Year … 1978

The now-defunct UK music magazine Sounds published its list of the Top 100 singles of the year in late December 1978. I recently came across this list (shown below) and picked out several that were unfamiliar to me, or that I hadn’t thought about for a long time, and cobbled them into this week’s offering. Hope you enjoy!
