Underoos: the underwear that’s fun to wear! Back in the ‘80s these were the thing to have. Nothing would have given me more nerd cred than having Batman on my butt.

Mix Tape Dance Party: Play Back 7/16/18

Jul 17, 2018

We call this week's Mix Tape Dance Party our OCD  episode since the music's so good, you want to hear it over and over again. We'll be hearing from The Struts, The Wrecks and the Naked and Famous, among others.

Don't remember where I heard it, but the conversation wasn't directed at me.  I must have been sitting somewhere among a whole group of people when I overheard a mom telling someone else about her boy, how he was really into his own music, how he was in three or four bands and had already produced his own CDs, how he was going to make music his career, wanted to be a singer/songwriter.

Sure, I thought. He and a half million others. Maybe more.

"That's all he lives for these days," she was saying, or something to that effect. She was proud of him, and I was cynical.
