Life is a Mixtape presents:

10 years ago this month I DJ’d my very first show on WRIR — entering the Great Unknown of having my own show. It was called Side Stages and it aired from 5 am to 7 on Sunday mornings. To celebrate my 10 years behind the mic, today I’ll be playing songs from that time — and I think my choices have held up pretty well. Tune in, or listen on the archive, it’ll be like a 2014 musical time capsule.
