This week on Built For Speed we hop in the time machine and head back to the period 1983 -1987, a time generally regarded as one of the worst in popular music. Built For Speed’s mission is to prove that the mid 80’s were not a complete musical garbage dump and that some of the finest (mostly alternative) music of all time emerged during this period. We’ll here from the great alternative artists of the era such as The Replacements, REM and The Smiths as well as a few bands who actually troubled the commercial charts. It’s also a big night of film reviews as we check out spook-fest Mama, alleged comedy The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, nostalgic French comedy/ drama Skylab and the confronting story of child soldiers in War Witch. Don’t forget our regular preview of upcoming gigs and TV for the week. Check out Built For Speed, Friday 8-10pm on 88.3 Southern FM.
