This week’s Revenge of the 80s Radio is taken from a suggestion by Sandro in Melbourne: the second hour will feature classic alternative/new wave music by artists from Australia and New Zealand. There was some great music our of that area of the world, but it was not until the mid-1980s that Americans were able to hear more from them on mainstream and college radio. We will play tracks from artists including Mondo Rock, Midnight Oil, Monte Video and the Cassettes and th e Divinyls.
We will also catch up on your requests, which can be made via radio#revengeofthe80sradio.com. We will also play a 2008 piece from Andy Taylor.
