Chart positions

30 minute episodes of 80’s New Wave, Synthpop & New Romantic music with commentary on each song, the date of release and some very brief histories. Not too long, not too short! Just 30 minutes of nostalgic time travel to a magical era of fun and fashion! Hosted by Motuvius Rex, Wave Runner is a program of Radio Arcane based in Louisville, Kentucky.

I love the brief historical information with all of these. Thank you for doing that! It gives a real feel of the period this music is from, far more than if you just played the music without any background on it. I really enjoy it!

Thank you, brother Billy! You were there with me, all the way back to these early years! You already know all about it!

I am gonna second the website suggestion. Their website is phenomenal! Their radio station is excellent and the Discord page worthwhile if you wish to communicate with the DJ's or keep up with things they do.

Great little set! My favorite Roxy Music and Bauhaus songs. Had not heard of Aerial FX, looking them up now.

For any SoCal listeners, ABC just announced a few shows in November 2021 at the Canyon Club venues.
