End Of The Century presents:

DAF - Alles ist Gut

When I hosted End of the Century four weeks ago, I focused on 1975 to 1981.   I’m picking up with 1981 and 1982 for this show.  I’m also slowing my roll a little; trying to choose a few songs from each year between 1975 and 1980 proved to be too ambitious.  So, I’m just looking at two years, and maybe dipping my toe into 1983.

Drab Majesty Ellipsis

Tonight, L.J. will be hosting Mercury Falls on WRIR 97.3 fm Richmond Independent Radio from 9 to 11 p.m.! He’ll be spinning some new stuff and a smattering of sufficiently iced cold tunes to suit the chill and detached tenor of Melissa’s show!
