About BlackLight Radio
BlackLight Radio is the 1,000 most popular songs of the 1980s, 24/7. While there are many 80s stations on the web (& a few over the air), many slant alternative, or rock & metal, or focus on the mid-80s to the exclusion of either end of the decade. Others seem to be only novelty songs of the 80s, while others completely ignore those songs.
BlackLight Radio plays the top 100 songs for each year, 1980 through 1989, as listed in Billboard Magazine's year-end issues.
(DISCLAIMER: BlackLight Radio is not associated with Billboard Magazine.)
These were the biggest songs of the decade, the 45s everybody bought, the songs every station played, the music videos everybody saw on MTV (or Night Tracks, or Friday Night Videos).
A lot of effort has been spent to track down the original hit single versions. Some haven't been heard on the radio since the 80s... some of them haven't been released on CD, ever! This is the 80s, the way the 80s actually sounded.
BlackLight Radio is music for those who lived the decade, or wished they were there. BlackLight Radio won't talk down to you, we won't make fun of your favorite 80s memories. As a child of the 80s, this is MY music, too... it doesn't matter what other generations think of these songs, they played at pivotal times in our lives. I promise to always treat those memories with respect!
