April 23, 2013 with Darin Ficcorelli

darin2I was lucky that good pal Darin Ficcorelli was available to pinch hit when my scheduled guest cancelled a few days before the event, and Darin came through with a theme and all. I got a text from Darin saying, “I started picking records and realized they were all from the 80s and then I didn’t stop.” So Darin stuck to a strict all-80s theme. I didn’t keep strictly within the theme, but a good majority of the night was all 80s, covering many genres. Enjoy the resulting fun mix below!
