Great Musical Selection!

If you’re a fan of 80’s synth (and of not why?) you’re in the right place.

Awesome playlist

Drew your one of (top two) podcasters in my library. I found this about a week ago and have been telling all my friends to check it out.

Needed Historical Podcast

This type of music is in danger of being forgotten about unless folks like Drew keep playing it and digging up all the unknown gems of this fantastic but often overlooked and even derided genre. Drew plays tracks not available on streaming that would otherise go unaired. And he obviously loves this music as much as his listeners do and that comes through in the selections and commentary loud and clear.
