Why the love for Frozen Ghost? Dale, who runs the "I Want My MTV" Facebook group, is a fan of the Six Million Dollar Man/Bionic Woman series and movies, and #27 was in the '89 "Bionic Showdown" movie(it featured Sandra Bullock in one of her first on-screen roles, as a cyborg). He requested it and he occasionally promotes my station in his group, so it's the least I can do; I also figured it would be a good time to throw in the group's 2 best-known U.S. tracks.
Tune into the station at http://awfullyawesomeeighties.com, join in our chat room, and look for the link to our Facebook group while you're there! You can also find us on Tunein.com, Nobex Radio(free apps for Google Play, Itunes and Blackberry), Reciva Radio, etc.
The hits and misses will keep on coming! Heck, this weekend I may get a bit dopey and add some long-forgotten tracks from Commander Cody, The Slickee Boys, The Finders and Joe "King" Carrasco!
