1980s Funeral Tribute For Steve Strange

Visage frontman Steve Strange’s last appearance on earth was inside this white coffin. With pall bearers from Culture Club (Boy George picture on the left) and Spandau Ballet, he leaves our view in the same fashion that he entered it.

In case you don’t remember that far back, Steve Strange saw early fame with a Sex Pistols gig in the late ’70s, and went on to form the New Romantic movement

Some of you might remember his first international appearance in David Bowie’s “Ashes to Ashes.” OH, THE IRONY!

The Mighty 690: All 80's Radio

If you grew up in San Diego, Orange County or Los Angeles during the same time that I did, I don’t need to tell you about The Mighty 690.
You remember, and can still here the bizarre, Spanish intros they’d play before you’d hear Duran Duran, Don Henley, Gary Numan, Billy Idol, Men At Work, Thomas Dolby and more.
The history of the AM radio station is right here.

Chris, the Intern, wanted to build an 80’s station online. For this tribute he wanted everything to be as authentic as possible.
He hopes you enjoy this little piece of retro cyberspace. He won’t be successful without your support. When you’re listening, tell your friends on social media.
