Be with you all in about 20 minutes for some cool synth sounds :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:01pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi everyone!This is DJ GeorgyGirl sitting in for DJ Henry :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:02pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Zero chat this week - just wall-to-wall music from the wonderful 80s :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:07pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I'm dedicating this show to Andy Weatherall <3
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:07pm Rich in Washington:

Hiya, DJ GeorgyGirl!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:07pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi Rich! Is your hair higher than God? ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08pm Rich in Washington:

Such sad news. First thing I saw when I got up this morning.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I clamped my headphones on and played "Come Together" full blast <3
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:10pm Rich in Washington:

Funny you should mention. My hair IS indeed higher than god this morning. Not sure why? Slept on it funny, I suspect.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:10pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

There you go - the 80s called for you! ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:11pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I found a coulored pencil in an art shop once and laughed so hard I had to leave and come back the next day to buy it. That pencil gave me so much joy :-) It was called "Deco Peach". About two people ever understand why I loved it so much :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:12pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Utter perfection from Duran Duran :-)
Avatar 2:14pm Sem:

Good day, djGG, RichiW, and the high-waisted and low-minded everywhere.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:15pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi Sem! :-)
Avatar 2:15pm Sem:

I understand the band initially wanted to call themselves Durian Durian, but something didn't smell right.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:16pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

LOL!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:17pm Rich in Washington:

Hi Sem!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:20pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I'm being a rebel today and letting the show run over by about four minutes ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:23pm Rich in Washington:

You rebel! You scofflaw! (no objections here!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:23pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

80s music like 80s hair is just too big to confine to one hour ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:27pm Rich in Washington:

So true.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:30pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

For me this is all college and university music :-)
Back in the days when my hair was SO full of product that whenever it rained I had plastic on my head :-) No high wind ever moved MY hair! ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:31pm Rich in Washington:

I have to confess that most bands of this milieu, other than the ones that tended towards Post-Punk - were rather unfamiliar to me back in the day, other than seeing their names or images on the cover of Smash Hits, etc. My younger brother was much more into these bands. I have to admit now that my brother had (and still has) much better taste in music than I thought at the time. Older brothers can be such dicks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:33pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

You can live out an alternate 80s fantasy here :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:35pm Rich in Washington:

Yes. I appreciate this era and music much more than I did in my punk philistine youth. I missed out on a lot of cool music back then, clearly.
Avatar 2:35pm Sem:

Memories, oh the memories....where have they gone?
:-D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:36pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

They've gone to the same place as my waistline ;-)
Avatar 2:36pm Sem:

*rimshot*
Avatar 2:38pm Sem:

It was the early 80s when I fled private broadcast and settled into a country house, so deep in a fijord that to this day there is no cell service, and only shortwave radio.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:38pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I imagine that was spectacular countryside tho!
  2:39pm ParUbi’s phone □ □ □ □:

Hey everyone, hi Gg
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:39pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hey there ParUbi! :-)
Avatar 2:40pm Sem:

Rural coastal Nova Scotia is paradise, don't tell anyone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:41pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Oh, I concur - there is nothing quite like the wilds of Canada :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:41pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Crank it up!!! This is a stonker :-)
Avatar 2:42pm Sem:

ParUbi's phone, greets from a super secret location.
Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 2:43pm Mr Fab:

Dang, it felt like Sunday, and Ive missed today's programming so far!

Rich: My and my friends used to call the more commercial stuff like this "little brother music," haha. But no, i was out there buying Joy Division, Ultravox and (early) Human League records. Felt quite at home with my other avant-rock stuff. Must admit, never would have occurred to me to check out Kajagoogoo, tho.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:43pm Stanley:

There I go again. Listening to one stream commenting on another.
Sorted now and the unmistakeable sound of the eighties. That's better (or is it?).
Help!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:44pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi Mr Fab! Hi Stanley! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:45pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

When I edited this show I did it with the headphones on very loud ;-) I had a blast! :-)
Avatar 2:46pm Sem:

Hello, Stanley. Edinburgh under a storm watch these days?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:47pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

The entire UK is battered at the moment! We've had all kinds of stuff flying through the air on the coast.
Avatar 2:48pm Sem:

My favourite weather maps these days is this gem: earth.nullschool.net...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:49pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Sem - yep. That's about the size of it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:49pm Stanley:

Hi Sem. Not too bad this side of the country but still shite.
Avatar 2:51pm Sem:

FYI: the middle green on that wind chart is ~70kmph.
Kite flying away weather,
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:51pm Stanley:

Spandex Ballet!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:52pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

We had a bunch of bins going for a run last night!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:52pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Stanley - can't beat a bit of Spandex Bollocks ;-)
Avatar 2:53pm Sem:

Can Flock of Seagulls and its haircut be far behind?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:53pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

The first time Duran Duran were on Top of the Pops doing "Planet Earth", my friend Penny said: "Ugh! What was that?? *Spandau Ants*?" ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:54pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I was going to include Flock of Seagulls but they didn't make the (hair)cut. Next time :-)
Avatar 2:54pm Sem:

Heh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:54pm Rich in Washington:

make this song a huge hit again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:54pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

TUNE!
  2:55pm Martinibomb:

Thanks for covering RRc! Busy with other stuff.couldnt chat much. Oooh my fave heaven 17 track thanks GG
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:55pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

"History will repeat itself" - ain't that the truth?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:55pm Stanley:

Thang!
Jeez DJ GeorgyGirl, you playing nuts with my tender memories.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:55pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi MB! :-)
Avatar 2:56pm Sem:

Do I recall "Heaven 17" being a group mentioned in Brave New World?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:56pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Glad you're all enjoying it :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:56pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Sem - Clockwork Orange :-)
Avatar 2:58pm Sem:

THx, knew is was a dystopia of some flavour.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:59pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

One more track after this (I'm running over) - thank you all for listening! This has been so much fun :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:00pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I'll be back in two hours with LoriHajiTura and then Greg is after me with Stop Hitting Yourself :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:01pm Rich in Washington:

Yay for running over! Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:02pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

:-)
Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 3:02pm Mr Fab:

A slew of CLASSICS there. Stuff I haven't heard in ages. I and all the Valley Girls salute you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:02pm Stanley:

See you later DJ GG and thanks for transporting me back to Bow '80 - '84
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:02pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I am saluting you all with my fingerless gloves ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:03pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I've had a blast doing this :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:04pm Rich in Washington:

I love OMD. Their Dazzle Ships is a really underrated and peculiar sample heavy album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:04pm Stanley:

...and the days of licensing hours.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:05pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

All good stuff :-)
Back in two hours - see you all then! :-)
