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!

NEW ADDS FOR 4/12

Another fine batch of new adds comes your way on Awfully Awesome 80's later on this morning! Some of these are requests and some come from my cloudy, overnight recollections of watching MTV in the early days:

Top 40 Hits:

1. Climie Fisher - Love Changes(Everything) - '88
2. Laura Branigan - Power Of Love - '87
3. Nancy Martinez - For Tonight - '86
4. Christine McVie - Got A Hold On Me - '84
5. Kansas - Play The Game Tonight - '82
6. Kansas - All I Wanted - '86
7. Robert Ellis Orrall With Carlene Carter - I Couldn't Say No - '83
8. Living Colour - Glamour Boys - '89
9. Triumph - Somebody's Out There - '86
10. Cyndi Lauper - Change Of Heart - '86
11. Belinda Carlisle - Leave A Light On - '89

Bottom 45's:

12. Duke Jupiter - I'll Drink To You - '82
13. Triumph - Say Goodbye - '82
14. Spoons - Bridges Over Borders - '86
15. Lulu Temple - Don't Say No - '83
16. Steve Winwood - Talking Back To The Night - '88 Remix
17. Tracey Ullman - Break-A-Way - '84
18. Player - If Looks Could Kill - '82

If you're a first-time listener, then be aware that what AA80's strives to do is to bring back what an hour of MTV used to be like: dominated by top 40 hits and recurrents with only a couple of "curves" thrown in. I'll never be as successful as 80's MTV was because they had all kinds of corporate backing. I'm not out to rule the world anyways; I'm fine with a small, loyal audience who keeps the station going and who knows that the 80's had a LOT more to offer than just "Don't Stop Believin'" and "Money For Nothing." Unlike MTV, you can count on my never branching out to reality/talk shows and you will get a lot longer than 2 to 4 weeks to become familiar with some of the "curves"/bottom 45's that I play(and hopefully you will dig some of them!).

Stop by and say hi and take a listen at http://awfullyawesomeeighties.com! I'm always willing to chat; my beta tape collection with episodes of "That's Incredible!" can wait...
