25 years ago this week, I added this unknown band to our station’s playlist. The label freaked out over the “too-early add.”  The band’s management sent me a bottle of Jameson. And after they sold many millions of CDs, they sent me this.

Talk smack all you want about Green Day — I don’t care, still like this record!

Aloha, Mr Hand.  Aloha, Spicoli. 

New Wave. Power Pop. Hard Rock. 4 of the 5 Eagles. That’s what 1982 was all about. This film set the trend for soundtracks for many years…and the brand of shoes I still buy today. 

Gnarly.

This compilation available only in the UK was the first import record I ever had. Teenaged me: “Wait, records are different in other countries?” Hooked.

It had a cool remix of “Won’t Get Fooled Again” and great packaging as you can see here.
