Come for a journey through the best of the 80s with Rob ‘the Face for Radio’ Burgess. Playing you one-hit wonders and forgotten classics as well as the 80s tracks you know and love, this is a whole hour dedicated to the decade that bought you Live Aid, Pac Man, and that TV episode ‘Who Shot JR?’.

The 1980s saw the emergence of electronic dance music and new wave. As disco fell out of fashion in the decade’s early years, genres such as post-disco, Italo disco, Euro disco and dance-pop became more popular. Rock music continued to enjoy a wide audience. Soft rock, glam metal, thrash metal, shred guitar characterized by heavy distortion, pinch harmonics and whammy bar abuse became very popular. Adult contemporary, quiet storm, and smooth jazz gained popularity. In the late 1980s, glam metal became the largest, most commercially successful brand of music in the United States and worldwide.

The 1980s are commonly remembered for an increase in the use of digital recording, associated with the usage of synthesizers, with synth-pop music and other electronic genres featuring non-traditional instruments increasing in popularity. Also during this decade, several major electronic genres were developed, including electro, techno, house, freestyle and Eurodance, rising in prominence during the 1990s and beyond.

Robbie can’t remember when his love for music started; “it’s just always been there”. From a young age, Robbie’s Dad would supply him with cassettes, and being a musician himself, took Robbie to a lot of gigs.
