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!

NEW ADDS FOR 5/9

I know, waiting for me to post some new adds to the rotation was like waiting for Genesis to release a follow-up album to Invisible Touch, but here we go:

Top 40:

1. Gavin Christopher - One Step Closer To You - '86
2. The S.O.S. Band - Take Your Time(Do It Right) - '80
3. Frank Stallone - Far From Over - '83
4. Alan Parsons Project - Games People Play - '80
5. Alan Parsons Project - Time - '81
6. Vixen - Cryin' - '89
7. Lionel Richie - Running With The Night - '83
8. Lionel Richie - Se La - '87
9. When In Rome - The Promise - '88

Bottom 45's:

1. Keep It Dark - Dreamer - '86
2. Animotion - Calling It Love - '89
3. Steve Carlisle - WKRP In Cincinnati - '81
4. Burns Sisters Band - I Wonder Who's Out Tonight - '86
5. Hawks - Right Away - '81
6. Shooting Star - Touch Me Tonight - '89

The Burns Sisters track is one of those fun and energetic lost gems that was just as good as anything that The Go-Go's and The Bangles had hits with; MTV played it for nearly 2 months!

Tune in using our "Listen Live" button at http://awfullyawesomeeighties.com. Our request theme this week is: Request an 80's hit or rarity from any N through Z artist!
