KREAM #6&7&8: North! South!

Jul 22, 2014

(NOTE: I fell off the blog train, so this is gonna be a pretty straightforward blog post moving pretty quickly through three incredibly enjoyable episodes that you hopefully got the pleasure of listening along to!)


I finally didn't have to ramble to myself all night, because OTR cohost Mary came in with some Bounce tracks and kept us on air past midnight! Shout outs to playing smooth Joe tracks in my freshman dorm, to forgetting your kangol hat when running out on a girl, to having Big Boi three times in one set, and to Dave Matthews Band, of course.

So much great music was discovered in the last four weeks that cound't be played that I just had a week of great leftover tracks I had pulled and never got a chance to play. I also explored the structure of future episodes, and I'll leave tags in the playlist to explain what we're in for in the future. Shout outs to structure. Shouts out to the DMB, you know who you are.
