80s Mixtape-May 2020


I recorded this mix on a rainy April evening.   I did so going live first on Linked In then finishing up on Instagram Live.    Live streaming is new for me, I was nervous.   I’m still developing my DJ technique.   The songs included in this mix I fondly remember from my childhood.   A few I discovered as an adult.   Enjoy!
