Several months ago, KEXP DJ John in the Morning sent me spinning as he played an hour-plus of music all from 1987 – purely for the sake of answering a listener’s question (“What came out in 1987?”).
Today, he’s at it again. John’s been playing tracks from stellar debut albums all morning…We’ve heard Depeche Mode, Sunny Day Real Estate, Public Enemy, Pearl Jam, Liz Phair, The Cure (from TIG’s favorite-ever collection, “Three Imaginary Boys”), and on and on and on. The music continues. I’ll update this with a setlist when he’s through – if he ever stops. I for one hope he doesn't – ever.
Update: Sounds like he plans to continue this tomorrow!
