I have to say how excited and impressed I am to hear you play Roachford! Nobody plays Roachford. I’d love to hear Kathleen someday too! Thanks!
A Great Weekly Dose of 80's Goodness
Chris Cordani goes out of his way to put together a great mix of 80's music each week. There is a nice balance between songs you know quite well to hidden (and perhaps sometimes forgotten) gems. After each show I have a list of tracks I need to add to my must-download-soon list of songs.
Makes my hours stuck in a cubicle fly by. Love the mix of well known songs and deep tracks. Eurythmics, Siouxie and the Banshees, Tom Tom Club, just like heaven :)
Great for repeat listening and since there's no wifi at the job, it's almost like my mini pandora new wave station.
