81 82 83 84

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.
