Radio Clash 87: That 1980s Show

This is the show about the decade that taste forgot – yes the 1980s, which for some unfathomable reason is popular amongst the yoot. I just remember the telly and most films being shit and wanting MTV (oh child of little knowledge) and waiting and hoping for Stock Aitken and Waterman to die in some bizarre mixing accident…

About to fuck off to Scottyland (going to go and hassle the occupants of various small islands, Wickerman style – and YES I’ll be podcasting from the highlands) but I FINALLY got the 1980’s show done….gah! Got some great mixes in it, but I think I’m going to do more music-chat-music shows and less theme/mix shows in future…

That taste is really shit

    Thanks Dave – there’s at least one mix fuckup I didn’t edit out (the wonder of live mixing!) so glad you like it.

    Conrad – ‘good’ dancefloor or ‘bad’ dancefloor?

    Brilliant as usual Tim. I especially liked the “Frenchbloke – Ugly Electric” mashup… not sure why… I guess the track “Electricity” just has 80’s written all over it. 🙂 Keep it up!
