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!

SPOTLIGHT TUNE FOR 5/19/19

TODAY'S SPOTLIGHT TUNE: Saga - Only Time Will Tell. You know this Canadian prog rock band from the early MTV favorites "On The Loose" and "Wind Him Up."

This 1987 single barely hit the Canadian RPM Singles chart and went unnoticed in the U.S. I only saw the accompanying video once on MTV's New Video Hour when VJ Carolyne Heldman was hosting the show. I remember buying the Wildest Dreams cassette and expecting to see other tracks with titles such as "Sole Survivor" and "Heat Of The Moment," but I was wrong. If you scoured the cutout bins like I did between '88 and approximately '92, then you stood a good chance of finding this album for dirt cheap.

This is now part of the rotation on Awfully Awesome 80's. What other lost Canadian hits from the 80's and early 90's aren't being played on the station? Let me know through our webpage's chat widget!
