The Retro Mix Playlist For 10/22/10

Show theme: Classic alternative

On this week's show, I was once again joined by my friend Denise as we spun some of our favorite classic alternative songs from the 70s, 80s, and 90s.  In between tunes, Denise and I had some fun exchanges and told stories as they related to the music we played.   Some of the stories/topics included:
  • Our feeling that the early to mid 90s era of alternative music was the last great period in rock. 
  • One of the all-time great comedies, "Clerks" and the scene where Dante learns of his girlfriend's extensive experience providing oral pleasure. 
  • How it's been fun for both of us exposing each other to our respective selections during both shows. 
  • The lack of prominent female rockers in the late 80s and how the alternative rock genre is more receptive to ladies who rock. 
It was a blast having Denise on the show.  Like Pjazzy said on my Facebook page, Denise is a natural.  In addition to the awesome tunes she selected, Denise brought a wealth of knowledge and energy to the show.  Although we don't have a firm date, I will be having Denise back on the show again.  She's even open to doing a show featuring oldies of the 50s and 60s!
