    Weekdays 9 am - 3 pm ET

    Sluggo, aka The SlugMonstrosity and/or Baron Von Slug, spent the early 80's sitting in front of MTV (just like you), started playing music on the radio in 1984, lost his concert virginity to Adam AND the Ants, did the blue hair, Rocky Horror and tacky buttons thing and finally ended up at KROQ in Los Angeles.  Yet he still can't get enough!  So, we've invited him to play Classic Alternative at you every day of the week.

    Google Richard Blade and you'll find several sites about the best of the '80s. He was instrumental in breaking many new wave bands, including Duran Duran, Depeche Mode and Tears For Fears. More recently, he co-produced VH1's Bands Reunited and he still holds out for the impossible: a Smiths reunion.

    Dave created, produced and hosted MTV's 120 Minutes, helping to bring Midnight Oil, Sinead O'Connor, The Cure and more to a mainstream audience. He's hung with Depeche Mode and U2, but his favorite memory is of traipsing around Tijuana with Johnny Rotten, trying on dresses in the pouring rain. Ahh...
