If you are an 80′s baby like me you know how great the music was back then. From Michael, to Dolly, Madonna. Back then music was really music. The artist could actually sing. It wasn’t all this auto tune and changing stuff up in the studio to make it sound better (not that there’s anything wrong with that, if that’s what your in the mood for). I loved the music from the 80′s and every now and then I need my fix.
Unfortunately it can sometimes be very difficult to find an 80′s radio station in my local area. But thanks to the internet I can listen to any music from any era right on my computer or mobile device. In my opinion, the 80′s Station on 977music.com is one of the best. The playlist is handpicked by a real human being, not some stupid algorithm that thinks it knows what you want to to hear.
Our Channel offer’s 80′s music that only plays the top hits from that decade. Its great to be able to turn on a radio station that is dedicated to the 80′s right? Listening to songs that have so much meaning and bring back so many great memories. Remember your first kiss? I bet it was to a hit from the 80′s, even if you weren’t an 80′s baby.
Remember the first person you fell in love with? How about the first time you made love? Chances are it was to one of the hits in the 80′s. The 80′s were the best. And when you listen to 80′s radio it will make you smile as you remember all the wonderful things that took place in your life during the 80′s.

The 80′s introduced the world to some of the best music ever created. Notable artists such as Duran Duran, Michael Jackson and Kenny Rogers released some of their greatest hits in the 80′s. 80s music was the type of music that crossed all lines and borders. It brought people together like never before. Do you remember the song “We Are The World”?
That song still till this day is considered one of the greatest songs ever written. It touched millions of people all over the globe. And guess who it was written by? None other than Micheal Jackson and Lionel Richie. And who can forget the very edgy and provocative “Like A Virgin” by Madonna? It was pop magic and it push the limits on every level.
It was an iconic statement that could only be made by an artist as bold as Madonna. And No top 80s music list would be complete without the legendary rap group Run DMC. There impact on the world of hip hop can’t overlooked. They are the ones responsible for introducing rap to the urban culture.
Not only did they influence the music world, they also had a huge influence on the fashion world. No one can forget “My Adidas”. They made Adidas the shoe to wear in neighborhoods all over the world. You also can’t forget “Walk This Way”. That collaboration with Aerosmith took music as whole to a new level. It brought 80s music rap to the mainstream and made it something people of all races and backgrounds wanted to hear.
April has been celebrated as Jazz Appreciation Month by the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American History since 2003 and by jazz fans year-round since the time of it’s invention. Jazz Music has an wide range of styles and a dynamic range that can switch rapidly from soft and seductive or loud and boisterous.
If you’re looking for a way to celebrate Jazz in April, first tune into 977Music’s Jazz Internet Radio Station. Esperanza Spalding, who was the first jazz musician to be named Best New Artist at the 2011 Grammy Awards explains why listening to Jazz Radio is a great way to discover new music you might enjoy.
“The benefit of the radio is, something beyond your realm of knowledge can surprise you, can enter your realm of knowledge,” Spalding explained. “Part of the premise of that stems from my concern about the accessibility of jazz, just how people can access it. If you don’t already know about jazz music, how would you be exposed? How would get an opportunity to find out if it spoke to you? If you get exposed to it enough, you might find a taste for it.”
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. So tune into our Jazz Music Internet Radio Station, and then check out all the great stuff happening to celebrate Jazz in April.

Initially focused on Jazz music with a game plan in the works to expand and cover other genres, a new website collaboration project with Boeing and local music locations in Chicago plan to provide visitors a comprehensive website to help visitors find out who’s playing, where and when.
