Everything '80s

Listen Now play-now

Description

channel-cover
There’s lots not to forget. Relive the decade that saw the birth of music videos and MTV, when pop music was dominated by the electronic sounds of the synthesizers: Duran Duran, Michael Jackson, ABC, Human League, Soft Cell, Prince, Blondie, early Madonna, the Police, and more. We shouldn’t have to remind you about pop, new wave, and mod, but if you’ve forgotten, tune in here to Remember the 80’s.

Music Programmer

programmer-portrait

Patrick Binette

As a student in Cinema, Patrick sought a temporary, more rewarding than fast food, job and was fortunate enough to be hired by a record store.

He was immediately hooked on both film and music which led naturally to the production of music videos and TV (Musiqueplus) as well as promotion and marketing for several labels (A & M, Polygram, Universal).

After a second journey to television as director of music programming at Musiqueplus, he finally joined the music programming team. A musical road trip of hundreds of concerts and thousands of songs that spans over 20 years .... already!
