This past Tuesday, Bob Stroud went back to 1983 on his Ten At Ten show on WDRV, Chicago's Drive.
This was a big year for me and I did a whole lot of listening as my deejay business was really taking off. I had spent 1982 deejaying at places that had their own equipment and learning the trade. I now had my own equipment and was getting paid a whole lot more.
Here are the songs he played:
TWILIGHT ZONE-- Golden Earring
MODERN LOVE-- David Bowie
SUNDAY BLOODY SUNDAY-- U2
I WANT A NEW DRUG-- Huey Lewis & the News-- Was that RnR or what?
BANG THE DRUM ALL DAY-- Todd Rundgren-- One of the all-time great party starters. Jonathan Brandmeier sure played it a lot on WLUP.
FOOLIN'-- Def Leppard
ON THE DARK SIDE-- John Cafferty & the Beaver Brown Band-- From the movie "Eddie and the Cruisers"
BURNING DOWN THE HOUSE-- Talking Heads
TENDER IS THE NIGHT-- Jackson Browne
GIMME ALL YOUR LOVIN'-- ZZ Top-- The only one without a beard was named Beard.
A Great Year. --RoadDog
