Ten At 1983

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
