Show 084: A Young Person’s Guide To Listen Up! (Part III – The Twenties Years) – Playlist and Archived Stream

listenup084

This week on Listen Up!:  Part III of the five part series of radio shows that count down the weeks before your host turns 50. The Twenties Years (1984-1994) will focus on music that came out during that time frame. It will be the sounds discovered via hanging out in dingy music venues, reading fanzines, record company mail room clerks, strange record shops and the usual oddballs.

Follow the Listen Up! Blog and/or “like” the show on Facebook . Both serve as an addendum and a means to interact with the program.
