#0103 – Run ’93

Play
Fall of 1993. I was beginning my second year at my third university, living at home, working for minimum wage at a used CD shop, driving my beat-to-hell 1984 black Ford Thunderbird. No girlfriend, my buddy Adam’s old driver’s license so I had a fake ID and I was living the high life.
This is what I was listening to on some AM station in Milwaukee back then. Maybe it was WLZR-AM?

Archaeological evidence dates domesticated dogs living with Native Americans at least 14,000 years ago. I suspect one day they’ll find evidence going back a lot further. Just a hunch. But until then, here’s to 14,000 years of friendship!

This mix has a special bonus track for dogs (or just people who like frog calls). Play the track for your dog and you should see an interesting reaction.

NOTE: I have a hardware issue I’m working on but until then the drive crunches a bit and so there are a few glitches here and there throughout the mix, but nothing Earth-shattering. If I wait until I fix the problem it will be months before this mix is released, so just releasing as is. It’s not that bad.

This week’s podcast is filled with songs I was listening to in the summer of 1994, which is the summer I met Suzy. This week is our 11th anniversary (everyone give her a shout out). So even though I doubt she’s listening, this episode is specifically for her. Artists include Jellyfish, The Boo Radleys, Cake, Stereo MCs, U2, Big Country, Crowded House, James, Belly, The Breeders, Rancid, Smashing Pumkins, The Cranberries, Mazzy Star and Climax Blues Band. Okay… Climax Blues Band isn’t from the summer of ’94, but it’s our wedding song, so deal 😛
