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.

This is the best video of an early Gang of Four performance I could find on YouTube – in Zagreb in 1981. If you didn’t see them live back then, check this out:

 

81 82 83 84 Episode 018: Hey Hey My My

Well we survived 2021! Let’s hope 2022 is an improvement.

As I mention on this week’s show, I came across a truly bizarre live jam on YouTube this week – Neil Young and Devo, playing Hey Hey My My (Into the Black). Here’s the link: https://bit.ly/3sKmom4 – if you can listen to the end you’re a stronger person than I am. (Note: this is NOT the version that’s in this episode.)

Here’s the latest installment of 81 82 83 84. Happy New Year everyone!

81 82 83 84 Episode 012: There’s Always the Sun

How many times have you been told
If you don’t ask, you don’t get?
How many lads have taken your money?
Your Mother said you shouldn’t bet
Who has the fun? Is it always a man with a gun?
Someone must have told you, if you work too hard, you can sweat?

There’s always the sun
There’s always the sun
Always, always, always the sun
