Reelin’ in the Years – 1988

It's 1988 and I'm 26 years old. I've been studying in India for a year, doing a degree in Comparative Religion. During summer break the heat was intolerable so I returned to Canada where the temperatures are great in the summertime. Somewhat out of touch with Western ways, I immersed myself in family, friends, and... Continue Reading →

Reelin’ in the Years – 1987

It's 1987 and I'm twenty-five years old. Looking over the charts I realize I'm at a loss in the pop world. This is a bit strange for me. Sort of like I fell into a black hole and couldn't receive all the signals of Western culture. Huh? Let me explain. Toward the end of the... Continue Reading →

Reelin’ in the Years – 1985

It's 1985, I'm 23 years old and getting past a romantic breakup by exploring new avenues of creativity. I'd just purchased a recording Walkman and inherited an old reel to reel tape deck that recorded one stereo track at a time. So a friend and I began making experimental music and alternative soundscapes. We taped... Continue Reading →

Reelin’ in the Years – 1984

It's 1984 and I'm 22 years old. 1984 was a slightly strange year because of George Orwell's literary masterpiece by the same name. Before 1984 the year was often mentioned as an ominous warning about how we did not want the future to go. David Bowie had released the haunting song "1984" back in 1974.... Continue Reading →

Reelin’ in the Years – 1983

It's 1983 and I'm 21 years old. A legal adult in most countries. I believe the age of majority was 19 yrs in Ontario back then. But it used to be 18 and 21 yrs. I'm not into alcohol so it never was a huge issue for me. What is an adult, anyhow? Some chronological... Continue Reading →

Reelin’ in the Years – 1982

It's 1982 and I'm twenty years old. No longer a teen. Wow. What a change. I'm loving university and my grades reflect it. Hey, maybe I'm not so dumb, after all, I mused. Maybe I just needed the right setting, the right courses, an inspiring professor or two... I was also a DJ at the... Continue Reading →

Reelin’ in the Years – 1981

It's 1981 and I'm 19 years old. This is the year of the comeback bands. The Moody Blues, Steve Winwood, and John Lennon all had huge albums and hit singles in '81. Lesser known acts like King Crimson released a respectable comeback album. And David Byrne (see 1980) teamed up with producer and ambient wizard... Continue Reading →

Digital Revolution – The 80s I don't know what's prompting me to do these song lists, but it sure is fun!

Joe Jackson – Right and Wrong Here's another one that was pretty big while I was at Trent. I remember seeing the album for the first time at Trent Radio, where I did a show called "From Here to Otanabee" (there's a river there called the Otanabee, and student residences by the same name). That was a play on "From... Continue Reading →
