Sorry I don't have clip, just a fragment of lyric of a tune that is driving me nuts, it went "way down way down in Alphabet town" It was released before 87 because Pete and Geets would comment on it (as only they could) every time they played it.

Rob, Look for a CD titled "A Canadian Alternative" Vol. 1, it has this song on it. Hard as hell to find though. If you have no luck e-mail me at:bince at look dot ca.

Thank you SO much...I've looked for this song forever. I heard it twice when I was in high school (83-87) and both times tried to contact the radio station to find out who sang it - but could never get through!

From Geo, 7/24/2017 5:41:00 PM:

Way way down in alphabet town there's a deal going down today
There's a deal going down in alphabet town....
Been trying to find this song since I was a teen

Haha - now that's a true CFNY listener:
JMalcovich, 12/7/2012 "I heard it twice when I was in high school ..." What a gift it was to experience The Spirit of Radio at its peak. Part cult, part family, hard to explain, but if you were there and you FELT it then you know.
