BOB's Featured 80's Track
a-Ha - Take on Me
The original “Take On Me” was recorded in 1984 and it took two versions and three releases to finally chart in the United Kingdom, reaching number two on the UK Singles Chart in October 1985. In the United States in October 1985, the song became the only A-ha song to reach the top of the Billboard Hot 100, due in no small part to the wide exposure on MTV of its innovative music video, directed by Steve Barron. The video features the band in a live-action pencil-sketch sequence. The video won six awards and was nominated for two others at the 1986 MTV Video Music Awards.
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!
