Rediscover the 1980's pop & underground landscape with a great mix of cult classics and new wave anthems, woven together by DJ Robert Drake the final Friday of every month from 7-11pm on WXPN.

Drake began spinning the new wave sounds when they were NEW wave sounds, working in various underground clubs in Philadelphia during the gritty era of 1980-1986.

From off-radar spots like The Love Club to commanding nights at Philly's premier alternative hotspots The Kennel Club, Omni's and a few special nights at Danceteria in NYC, the Rock of the 80s became his passion.

And now he shares his passion with you - every final Friday on WXPN.

REMEMBERING PEEL - August 2014

Every August on the Land Of The Lost we carve out some time to remember the late, great broadcaster John Peel. He was the longest serving of the original BBC Radio 1 DJs, broadcasting regularly from 1967 until his death in 2004. He was known for his eclectic taste in music and his honest and warm broadcasting style. John would have turned 75 August 30, had he not left us so suddenly back in 2004. Hard to imagine it's been ten years since his passing. In the 10pm hour we'll play nothing but PEEL SESSIONS from the BBC studios - plus pepper in some Peel Sessions in the mix throughout the rest of the show this month. 

As I'll mention during the show - I highly recommend you visit this incredible site, archiving each and every artist's visit to see John Peel - it's a treasure trove of musical memories! http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio1/johnpeel/sessions/
