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!

AWFULLY AWESOME 80'S NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT AND SONG RECOMMENDATIONS!

The below was a post I made earlier today in my Obscure MTV Facebook group at http://facebook.com/groups/obscuremtv:

As some of you already know, "Not only am I the president, but I am also a member..." Oh sorry, had a TV flashback there. Seriously, as some of you know, I also run a lil' ol' internet radio station called Awfully Awesome 80's that is striving to bring back what you heard during all of those glory days of MTV, no matter how overplayed, lightly played, mainstream, underground, ear-bleeding, sappy/sweet, loved, or hated the song may have been!

Here is your opportunity to submit a list of 50 recommendations of 80's songs that you feel that AA80's should be playing! They can be hits, misses or even ditties that your local spandex-wearing bar band managed to get played on your highly influential local rock station(being an AOR collector, I can tell you that some of those local bands should have hit the big time!)!

Awfully Awesome 80's is a listener-supported station that's on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The reason why I'm doing this is because, quite frankly, I haven't been seeing much listener support lately and I'm starting to wonder if the material is too varied or "out there." Please submit your list via the contact form at http://awfullyawesomeeighties.com(it's just above the Streamlicensing gold seal) and while you're there, take a listen either through the "Listen Live" button or download one of the three free mobile apps through my partnership with Nobex Radio. We are also on Tunein.com.
