Unabashed propaganda for the new wave of rock ’n’ roll on the rise at the head of the Reagan era, URGH! A MUSIC WAR captured some of the most exciting musical acts of its era live in prime form. URGH! provided each of its 24 bands the space of a single song to leave an indelible impression before moving along. Urgh! has endured as a vital time capsule of its musical moment, presented in hi-fi with relatively little corporate intervention. So please join us as we present Devo, Echo & the Bunnymen, X, 999, Klaus Nomi, Au Pairs, Oingo Boingo, UB40, The Cramps, Gary Numan, Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, XTC, and many more in the musical event of 1981. 

Co-presented with CHIRP 107.1 FM
