Generation 80s Retro Radio was modeled after the great Classic Alternative radio stations like KROQ and 91X in Southern California and WLIR and WDRE on Long Island/NYC, both places I lived in the 80s. Remember Richard Blade, Poor Man, Jed the Fish? Donna Donna, Weepin' Willobee, Gary Cee, Howard The Duck and the Screamer of the Week? If so, you will love Gen80s archive of New Wave and alternative classics, with many rare songs you don't hear on any other internet or satellite station from the late 70s Post Punk era to the early 90s Modern Rock period, with the emphasis on 80s New Wave, Retro and Classic Alternative music.

Broadcasting has become extremely expensive over the years(and due to overall costs, I've had to pull my website down for now, but am looking at developing a new domain and site in the near future - so for now it's a my Generation80s music BLOG only - link above), so please consider supporting this station via a VIP/Preferred membership as your VIP listening hours help support Gen80s, and YOU NEVER GET A STATION FULL MESSAGE ++PLUS++ you listen completely AD FREE and no periodic log outs or "are you still there" notifications. Sign up using the green button above right or the blue "support this station" button above. Spread the word to your friends and keep classic alternative 80s music alive!

Finally, I'd like to extend heartfelt thanks for each of you who tune in regularly & have lent your support to my station (website and forums) over the past 8 years and through many tumultuous changes in the web casting world. I welcome your shout outs, requests, emails and input. Feel free to contact me and say "hey". Thanks guys - YOU ROCK!

PLEASE NOTE: DON'T BE FOOLED! If you do a trial run with Live365 Radio Desktop and don't choose to go VIP after the trial expires, even though the player gives you a message that you can't listen anymore to the station unless you are VIP, and that it is only available to VIP's or it is full that is ONLY to continue using Radio Desktop, and is NOT the case if you shift back to the regular web based player or using Winamp or another media player!!! It is confusing and makes it seem like you can't listen FREE anymore as they want you to chose a PRO station over a hobbiest station. Don't be fooled! Please consider VIP membership as you get the MP3 PRO upgraded quality, NO ADS, NO STATION FULL MESSAGES and it DOES help support this station, but you can still listen even if you don't upgrade. javajane dj java jane java jane retro radio club 80s club80s gen80s generation80s generation 80s retro radioflashback alternatives first wave xm sirius satellite radio kroq wlir wdre darkwave gothic playlists
