80s this Sunday on WMCO

WMCO Studio My second (and last) radio show this semester is Sunday night. I'll be playing my favorite 80s songs from 7 to 9 p.m. Yeah, I'm old enough to have heard some of these on the radio in high school and college (sigh).

The songs I have picked out so far include:

  • Animotion: Obsession 
  • Bananarama: Cruel Summer and Venus 
  • Blondie: Rapture
  • Bronski Beat: Smalltown Boy
  • Colourbox: Pump Up the Volume 
  • Dead or Alive: You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)
  • Depeche Mode: People are People
  • Dexy's Midnight Runners: Come on Eileen 
  • Duran Duran: Hungry Like the Wolf and Reflex
  • Gloria Estefan: Rhythm is Gonna Get You
  • Eurythmics: Here Comes the Rain Again
  • Falco: Rock Me Amadeus [aka Eat Me Hot Potatoes to one of my friends from high school]
  • Heart: Never
  • Howard Jones: Things Can Only Get Better
  • Human League: Don't You Want Me
  • Information Society: What's on Your Mind (Pure Energy) [You Go Spock!]
  • Madness: Our House
  • Murray Head: One Night in Bangkok
  • New Order: True Faith and Blue Monday
  • Pet Shop Boys: West End Girls
  • Tears for Fears: Shout
  • T'Pau: Heart and Soul
  • 'Til Tuesday: Voices Carry
  • Soft Cell: Tainted Love
  • Kim Wilde: You Keep Me Hangin' On

I've played some of these last semester (and summer), so you'll just have to listen to them again. I considered including Relax (Frankie Goes to Hollywood) and Peek-a-Boo (Siouxsie and the Banshees), but thought it was best to avoid angry calls to the FCC.

Virtual ODCE 2007

I'm not attending ODCE this year since I'm going to ACRL in three weeks. People are starting to post to the conference blog. Chad Boeninger is blogging the sessions he is attending. Other blog posts are also starting to show up on Technorati. It's almost like being there…
