BOB's Featured 80's Track
Men Without Hats - The Safety Dance
The song entered the Canadian top 50 in February 1983, peaking at number 11 on May 14. In the meantime, “The Safety Dance” was released in the US on March 16, but did not enter the US charts for a few months. When it finally did, the record became a bigger hit than it had been in Canada, spending four weeks at its peak position of number 3 in September and October 1983, and staying on the Billboard Hot 100 for 24 weeks. It also reached number 1 on Cash Box, as well as number 1 on the Billboard Dance Chart. “The Safety Dance” found similar success in other parts of the world, entering the UK charts in August and peaking at number 6 in early November, and entering the New Zealand charts in November, eventually peaking at number 2 in early 1984.
Nansemond River High School
Principal Daniel OLeary Jr. mentions BOB FM in his speech to his 2018 graduation class of Nanesmond River High School. OLeary speaks about how BOB FM gave him inspiration for his speech (and BOB loves it). BOB FM plays a variety of music with no repeats each day… when working on his speech Principal OLeary said the the variety of songs is much like his students that he has in the 2018 class. An eclectic group each with their own songs coming together and making one amazing radio station AND one amazing 2018 graduation class. BOB wants to congratulate you all!
