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 4/7

It's time for some more new adds, rotation replacements, requests, and some potential head scratchers on Awfully Awesome 80's:

Top 40:

1. The System - Don't Disturb This Groove - '87
2. Glass Tiger - I'm Still Searching - '88
3. Juice Newton - Heart Of The Night - '82(requested)
4. Chris De Burgh - Don't Pay The Ferryman - '83
5. Saga - On The Loose - '82
6. Richard Marx - Should've Known Better - '87
7. The Jets - Make It Real - '88
8. Charlie Sexton - Beat's So Lonely - '85
9. David Lee Roth - Just Like Paradise - '88
10. Eurythmics - There Must Be An Angel(Playing With My Heart) - '85(requested)
11. Larry Graham - One In A Million You - '80

Bottom 45's/Non-Charters:

12. Bad Company - Shake It Up - '89
13. New Frontier - Under Fire - '88
14. Wax - Right Between The Eyes - '86
15. Stryper - Always There For You - '88
16. Precious Metal - Bad Guys - '85
17. Nicolette Larson - That's How You Know When Love's Right - '86(Duet With Steve Wariner - requested)

I know some of you are saying "Who are Precious Metal, Wax and New Frontier?" Awfully Awesome 80's not only spins the decade's hits and misses, but its ultimate goal is to present a nearly thorough "audio history of MTV, VH-1, BET, etc." This means giving some love to those artists that never got beyond breakout rotation(in other words, a 3 AM spin!). A lot of you would say that some of those artists deserved their fate, but if you stuck around long enough, you would find a few gems in the rubble!

Tune into the station at http://awfullyawesomeeighties.com, join our Facebook group, and don't be afraid to submit a challenging request! Coming up next week will be forgotten tunes from Cruzados, I Am Siam, Gamma, Hugh Cornwell, etc. and of course more of the classic hits!
