Song of the Week - "Bad" by U2

My favorite U2 song has always been "Bad," released in 1984 on their great The Unforgettable Fire album. However, the best recording of the song is a live version from their 1985 release, Wide Awake in America. This is the Vinyl Voyage Song of the Week, premiering at 9am Wednesday and repeated at 9pm (Central)

Next on Mix Tape Memories - "Many Songs #4" from 1986

This is one of the few mix tapes I have with the date of creation. In this case, October 18, 1986. I was a freshman in college and listened to this tape taking the bus home on weekends. It features many songs I gleaned from others, in all honesty.

But it really represents the music of my life at that moment in my life.

Just like a good mix tape does.




New episodes of Mix Tape Memories can heard every Friday night at 8pm (central) on Vinyl Voyage Radio.  Past episodes can be heard on-demand via Mixcloud.

Song of the Week - "Midnight" by Yaz

Upstairs at Eric's is one of the best albums of the 1980s. It was hard to pick a song off this debut from the UK synth-pop duo Yaz. Fronted by Alison Moyet there was not a better pop singer in the 80s.

On this episode of Song of the Week, we are spinning the song "Midnight."



You can hear the Song of the Week at 10am and 10pm (Central) every Wednesday.

Only on Vinyl Voyage Radio.
