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.
