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!

I will be striving to add around 100 new titles per month from now on, and that includes some early 90's tracks that I mentioned recently(80's related and/or 80's sounding). I'm always taking suggestions!

I hope you have a rocking 2019! Let's hope that The Stray Cats have a successful reunion. And RIP to Dr. Hook's Ray Sawyer and The Captain(Daryl Dragon); while their best days were behind them in the early 80's, they continued to chart and will always be a part of the AA80's family.
