Thank you so much to all the beautiful folks who tuned in to my aNONradio show!!! We reached 37 live listeners!!! 🍀✨ thank u to all who were on chat during the live show! Awesome 80s music information exchange there!!! I learned so many really cool 80s artists/bands!!
i can confidently say that my favourite new old band tonite was FORUM from the former Soviet Union!!! Thank u to @tbn97 for introducing me to this awesome band!!
we need more iron curtain music!!!🤪🤪
@snowdusk_ I fell in love with Форум the moment I discovered them. Thanks for playing them Snowy! You were once again on fire for the whole set <3
@tbn97 U R very welcome!!! 👍 I love their minimal synth sound! ... and the lead vocal looks... er... very, regular-looking 🤪👍 nothing wrong with that of course 🤡 He reminds me of our IT guy Aleksei from this company i worked for before haha
@snowdusk_ <secret> I actually have a little crush on him... </secret>. There is something about his "just rolled out of bed in 1987" look, and self aware performance to camera...
@tbn97 haha... i think everyone at that time pretty much looked the same inside or outside of the Iron Curtain LOL i need to stop using that term because that is HISTORY! 🔥 In the 80s most of us in the "west" did not really hear a lot of music (well, pretty much any media???) from the USSR and her "satellite" nations... well, myself anyway haha and this is why i was so fascinated by stuff coming out of "The Iron Curtain" 🤪 I want MINISTRY OF CULTURE show to come back on anonradio!
@snowdusk_ I dunno. I think my hair and threads were cooler, but that might have been a bit much for the USSR. I think "Iron Curtain" is bang-on appropriate in context - we are talking about the Cold War era 😜
We had a sketch show - "Fast Forward" that used to hang crap on Russia (as one of their segments) just around the time of the USSR's collapse - not very PC but extremely funny at the time: https://youtu.be/9S6i_xLUlkM
@tbn97 in 1987 my hair was pretty much like the vocal dood and wearing oversized t-shirt with one of the popular 80s icons on it like Fido Dido, Ziggy, Madonna LOL ..... acid washed jeans ... ugh... Swatch Watch or Robo Watch and a pair of white "Tretorn" (i did not use those shoes given to me as bday present so much because i quickly outgrew them.. i was pretty much still growing up then LOL what a waste... they were really popular then)... oh 80s LOL
@snowdusk_ me in 1987 🤪
@snowdusk_ PS - I remember shopping for Jeans and insisting on acid wash to my Mother's disgust. I now understand her objections, but at the time...
@snowdusk_ HA HA! Awesome! Did not know them - now more to explore! OMG - I have a little 80s Casio keyboard that makes those sleepy rhythms! That is one parallel universe nostalgia hit!
