On Friday December 21, the Linsmore Tavern (1298 Danforth Ave) is so excited to welcome for the very first time The Bonfire Merchants Tribute to the Spirit of the Radio and 1980’s New Wave! This is going to be an extremely fun night and quite a way to kick into the Christmas Holidays! Get ready to dance and party to the music of CFNY 102.1!
The Bonfire Merchants are a tribute to a time when music was your everything, and CFNY was the only place you could find it. No streaming. No MP3s or digital downloads. No YouTube. No internet. No music on demand. Just you, your radio, and that faint signal from 102.1 FM in Toronto. The Spirit of Radio. It was like nothing else, anywhere. The cutting edge music that defined the 1980s: The Smiths, New Order, The Police, The Jam, Simple Minds and Depeche Mode. Now the Bonfire Merchants channel you back to the golden age of CFNY. Dial in the sounds you once heard from Live Earl Jive, David Marsden, Martin Streek, Alan Cross. Remix the memories. Reload the Spirit of Radio. Relive the CFNY sound with The Bonfire Merchants.
