Thanks for stopping by! Awfully Awesome 80's is your 24/7 internet radio guide to the 1980's and early 1990's(primarily the tunes that kept the 80's spirit alive!). We play the classic top 40 hits and the lost hits, but we also place a heavy emphasis on the minor charters and non-charters...or as we call them, bottom 45's. If you were a fan of obscure MTV artists, then you have come to the right place! Special shows will be announced as time permits. If you have a request or a suggestion or just want to say hi, then please use our chat widget in the lower right corner. There is also a song request form below on the right sidebar.

If you appreciate what we do, then please make use of our PayPal buttons on the site. You can donate a one-time amount or choose from 10 monthly subscription amounts; the donations will help enhance our programming and keep us on respected broadcasting platforms like Mixcloud and Live365.


A Live365 stream will be launched during the first week of November. Please show your support! For a donation of $15.00 a month, you will get the following perks:


Unlimited listening

5 requests per day(80's-early 90's charting or non-charting singles only)

Ban a specific song from the rotation for 1 month

Your own 2 hour theme block every other month(all AOR hits, all new wave, all college rock, etc.)


A progress thermometer can be found below the Paypal buttons. If there isn't enough interest shown by the end of 2019, then I will need to shut down this station and switch to being exclusively a once-in-a-while podcaster. It's up to you!

23. Intimate Strangers - Let Go - '87(it was in the movie "My Demon Lover")

25. Frozen Ghost - Should I See - '87
26. Frozen Ghost - Round And Round - '88
27. Frozen Ghost - Step By Step - '88

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!
