From 9 until 16 October 2020, NOW 80s rebranded temporarily as LENNON80 to mark what would've been John Lennon's 80th birthday.

Post-Punk Pop exploded on the charts of the early 80s, and The Associates and The Stranglers feature, as do The Adventures ‘Broken Land’ and Marc Almond’s ‘Stories Of Johnny’ – both amazing songs.

As Now 80s became a channel which only viewers in Manchester could get on Freeview during this time, AATW decided to simulcast the repeats of Fame on their Now Christmas channel so viewers nationwide could follow the series. NOW Music proudly presents NOW – 80s Alternative: 80 tracks across 4 CDs encapsulating the era and celebrating an incredibly diverse decade for ‘Alternative’ music.

The 48 tracks included are extended, full-length or remixed versions of pop hits of the day, reflecting the move from disco to synth-pop/new wave.
