We pay tribute to The Cars on The AIR, as Friday, with a brand-new episode of  Sydney’s Big Electric Cat. Sydney Fileen presents two hours of tracks from the classic first five albums by New Wave stalwarts The Cars. You can listen at the website, or on this embedded radio player…

Friday at 3 PM you will get your two-hour dose of crunchy New Wave goodness. This week Sydney Fileen pays tribute to Ric Ocasek, who passed away last month, and also Benjamin Orr, the co-lead-singer for the quintessential American New Wave band, and the best thing to ever come out of Boston, The Cars.

You will hear a seamless mixtape featuring major hits, obscure deep cuts and a B side or two by The Cars, with a brief introduction by Ms. Fileen. In all, this episode of The Big Electric Cat is jam-packed with 30 songs by The Cars.

Sydney’s Big Electric Cat is produced at Haversham Recording Institute in London, and can be heard every Friday at 3 PM, with replays Saturday afternoon, Tuesday at 7 AM, Wednesday at 8 PM and Thursday at Noon, exclusively on The AIR. Every Monday at 3 PM, we bring you four classic episodes of Sydney’s Big Electric Cat, just so you can be all New Wave-y when you get home from work.

Look for a new PopCulteer later this afternoon.
