Radio Free Eggsy - Hoyme '85 (May 2019)

Radio Free Eggsy - Hoyme '85 (May 2019)

Playing tracks by

Godley & Creme, Prince & the Revolution, Level 42, Fine Young Cannibals, The Go-Betweens and more.

My monthly takes a nostalgic turn as I prep for my 30th reunion at St. Olaf College.

I started thinking back to 1985 and all the music I brought to my freshman dorm room (in Hoyme Hall), both the physical record and tape collection from my raids on Twin Cities record stores like (Oarfolkjokepus, Platters, and Down in the Valley) and what sounds I was grabbing onto from radio and magazines. I decorated my room with posters and ads ripped out of Billboard and NME (leaving my roomie with one corner to decorate with his two posters from Germany).

The mix is a grab bag of styles — the jazzy pop of Level 42 and Style Council (which had an added liberal-socialist element), twee synthesizer sounds from Prefab Sprout, Scritti Politti, and China Crisis, the jangly feel of Everything But The Girl and Australia's Go-Betweens, and some big pop classics from Prince, Simple Minds, and Eurythmics.
