Songs You Forgot About!

I'm sure that everybody here has heard of the band D-Day from their song "Too Young To Date", but there is probibly one that you heard and enjoyed in its day called "Right To Know". "Right To Know" came out in 1981 and got decent airplay for about a year on KROQ and probibly 91-X as well. It also seems to have been played on Dallas radio station 94.5 The Edge.
It was only released as a 7" 45rpm single but never made it on to D-Day's one and only self titled album.

The MP3 elves sent me this song in my E-Mail today in 256 bit glory. :)

It has also found its way to the "Wave Fanatics Hotline Server" under the uploads section. You will need the Hotline file sharing client.
server is: wavefans.dyndns.org

They upload mp3s to that site all the time (there are now 600+ added on to the orginal 200+ song, Not inclucing mixes!!). Ive been downloading for forever off that server. It is really awsome. If your reading this, download Hotline and check it out.

other note:
You can get to this site and others like it through 80s.about.com (sp?)
there are other synthpop/mp3 sites.

In case you havent heard: One of the greatest rare new wave sites has shut down a while back. WXB102 mp3 is no longer on the net.

Do you know if the Hotline Client has any spyware or cycle-suckers on it?

Not that I can tell. I am sitting behind a firewall and a router so I'm sure I would have seen something by now.

Been awhile since I`ve visiting NVOpost and happy to see this forum. Alvy, Hotline does seem suspicious regarding spyware. I`ll check it out in the next few days cause I am curious too.
