If you’re like a lot of us here at WRIR, you have a soft spot for at least some of the music from the 1980s. Whether it’s new wave, punk rock, neopsychedelia, metal, funk, or good ole college radio rock, you’ll likely hear it on this show. Hosted by a rotating cast of WRIR DJs, each episode has a slightly different flavor. And that keeps it interesting! DJ hosts include Sean Kennedy, Gene (The British Breakfast), DJ Graybeard (The Other Black Music, The Motherland Influence), Rev. Noah, Fontaine (What The Fontaine?!), Enzo (POP Goes The World), Allan Coberly (The New Breakfast Snob), Albert Green, Amanda Cleland (Happy House), and others.
