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! 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. Requests are always accepted! When it comes to "Awfully Awesome 80's," too much 80's is definitely never enough!

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...
