Over a month ago I came across a new station that plays new wave music mostly from the 80's. It is 103.1 "The Wave" and I have really enjoyed hearing so many songs I had not heard since I was in high school.
This station features artists like: Yaz, Peter Gabriel, Modern English, Flock of Seagulls, The Human League, Duran Duran, Depeche Mode, Talking Heads, Devo, Oingo Boingo,The Cure, Tears for Fears, Eurythmics, Psychedelic Furs, INXS, Madness, The Thompson Twins, The Fixx, Erasure, B52's, Wall of Vodoo, Adam and the Ants, The Smiths, Thomas Dolby, etc.
I like hearing music that takes me back to a time when I was young and had so much energy. It's amazing how many memories music can bring back. For instance, whenever I hear Spandeau Ballet's "True" or Billy Idol's "Mony Mony" I am taken back to high school dances and can feel myself in a dark, crowded, sweaty gym full of nervous teenagers. I'm not a fan of either of those songs but they bring back lots of memories.
Anyway, if you getting tired of hearing the same pop songs on the radio and would like to re-discover some fun music from a great time period then I recommend 103.1 The Wave.
