The ’80s theme has proved a pop­u­lar choice with 1985 – also the year event spon­sors Com­mu­nity News­pa­per Group was formed – re­cently voted the best year in mu­sic by sta­tion lis­ten­ers.

Mix94.5 mu­sic di­rec­tor Rus­sell Clarke said the decade had been a favourite with the sta­tion’s mu­sic jury for some time.

“The av­er­age mix94.5 lis­tener is in their late 30s/early 40s and, be­cause they grew up in the ’80s, have a par­tic­u­lar af­fec­tion for mu­sic from that era,” Clarke said.

“1985 was a mem­o­rable year in mu­sic from that decade due to Live Aid, USA for Africa and great movie sound­tracks like The Break­fast Club.

“It was also very strong for great pop hits from artists such as Nik Ker­shaw, Howard Jones, Wham!, A-ha and Go West.”

Tick­ets are avail­able online at www.oztix.com.au and all money raised will buy vi­tal equip­ment for Princess Mar­garet Hos­pi­tal.

Com­mu­nity News­pa­per Group has eight dou­ble passes to give away to mix94.5 Brings Back the Good Times. Visit www.com­mu­ni­tynews.com.au by July 27.
