They Just Don’t Write Them Like THAT Anymore

I listen a LOT to Sirius/XM Channel 33, “1st Wave,” both online and in the car. It’s the 80’s “alternative” music – Depeche Mode, Eurythmics, Smiths, Police, Violent Femmes, Talking Heads, New Order, Oingo Boingo, Erasure, Ramonex, Fixx, Cult, B-52s, Billy Idol, and so on. While they have an extensive playlist, it’s not infinite. It’s hundreds of songs long, unlike some of the BPM channels that are literally a dozen or so songs long, but there are things I remember from that era which don’t get played regularly.

But there are a couple of shows that get a bit more eclectic, like the Friday night “Party 360” show with Dave Kendall. Which just played…

Indeed, they don’t write them like THAT anymore!

Now if I could get them to play some TonioK…

Does anyone but me remember “Life In The Foodchain”? Anyone? Bueller?

There was some really weird stuff back in the late 70’s, and I wasn’t even on drugs…
