DJ Gilbert Matthews welcomes you to "Awfully Awesome 80's," a 24/7 internet radio station whose main goal is to play every tune that appeared on MTV's playlist between August of 1981 and December of 1989! As of February 1, 2019, the rotation will be expanded to include hits and misses from the late 70's and early to mid 90's that had connections to 80's artists! We will also include lost and classic top 40 hits from the entire decade as well as tunes that aired on MTV's specialized shows such as "Headbanger's Ball," "120 Minutes," "The Basement Tapes," etc. 80's tunes that never had videos or that only aired on non-MTV outlets such as WTBS Night Tracks, VH-1, BET, HBO Video Jukebox, etc. will also be eligible! Every hour, you will hear either 3 or 4 80's "Bottom 45's," which means tunes that peaked south of the top 40, tunes that didn't chart at all, or tunes that only charted in Canada, the UK or Australia. When it comes to "Awfully Awesome 80's," too much 80's is definitely never enough!

The request theme for this coming week in our Facebook group will be "Request your favorite hit or obscurity that was released between 1985 and 1989."

Upcoming specials include an April 1982 Album Rock Tracks chart countdown, "That Was Then, This Is Now" two-fers, and a potential weekly half-hour mini showcase of early 90's tunes that carried on the 80's spirit(thinking about calling it "One Step Beyond").

If you're tired of the same old 80's tunes, then give us a try! When it comes to digging, we're not afraid to go "in too deep!"
