Feb. 16, 1980: New Wave rock is a cult phenomenon that is on its way out, says AOR radio consultant Lee Abrams. "With the exception of the Boomtown Rats, the Police and a few other bands, we're not going to be seeing many of the New Wave circuit acts happening very big over here (in America). As a movement, we don't expect it to have much influence."

Patrick Goldstein says: "This may mean bad news for fans of acts such as the Clash, Elvis Costello and the Talking Heads, who have begun to enjoy regular airplay on many AOR stations."
