Back To The Egg post-membership drive special: Pitchfork 80's countdown!

Back To The Egg
Air date: 
Sun, 09/20/2015 - 12:00am - 3:00am
Short Description: 
wherein we countdown a number of 1980's hits using a predetermined list
Drive should be over, time to say THANK YOU with an all 80's show!

For this one we have borrowed a list that PItchfork Media published over the summer: the top 200 songs of the 1980's. It is an odd list, I'm sure the one we would come up with (any one of us, for that matter) would look and sound quite different, but this kind of "Controversy" can make for some good radio or at least some good discussion.

And discuss we will! For this drive special quite a few of my radio friends are joining in on the fun including Jeremy Petersen (XRAY.FM music director), John Shepski (owner of Fluff & Gravy records), as well as sometime co-hosts Todd Bayles and Michael Keefe.

My buddy Todd joined me tonight for some co-hosting. We always have a good time swapping songs. One of us will throw something on, and the other will say, "I know the perfect song to play after this!" and so it goes. We hope you enjoyed it, cuz we sure did.

At the suggestion of my friend Jerry, I played some Vic Chesnutt songs. Vic was a singer/songwriter from the South. He committed suicide and died on Christmas Day.

Johnny Indovina from Human Drama's new disc

I am hoping you'll add a track from the new disc by Johnny Indovina & Sound of the Blue Heart; I think it's a good fit for the show (I'm here in Portland).

Should I send you the cd?

Here's the links to sample some of the tracks:

Hope to hear from you soon,
