I like 80s music, and I spend time hunting down 80s gems that I didn’t hear back in the day, either because I grew up in the U.S. and missed out on all the cool euro stuff or because most 80s nights tend to feature the same few dozen hits again and again. I decided to try out putting some of my favorites in an “annotated mixtape,” to borrow the phrasing of the podcast Different Head, which I like a great deal and which inspired me to make this show. Enjoy the synthy goodness.
