EatKS – 1996 Mixed Tape Throwdown

The show is back with more mayhem and nonsense than ever before. I debated about making this a true mixtape with no talking and it just being about the music but my choices are pretty obscure for the most part. Sure we all loved some great bands from 20 years ago, did I play your favourite bands and the popular hits that the DJ’s were playing in the bars and radio so you can remember your college years…. um no.

Firstly a big huge thank you to the awesome unappreciated scholars for the mayhem and the shenanigans that lead up to this crazy idea of a podcast.  We did have to hammer out some ground rules for the podcast:

  •           more that 2 genres in the podcast
  •          1 genre that we don’t normally play on the podcast
  •          the show must be longer than 45 minutes but not longer than 90 minutes
  •          3 fun facts about 1996Sorry iTunes and RSS feed folks, you will have to go to my website to find the unscholars mixed tape show and compare the two podcasts, cause it’s not called a throwdown for nothing!.It’s a messy playlist of some very popular albums but not the “hits” on the albums. Why it is a messy show? 1996 wasn’t just about that rock/alternative genre that flooded the masses.   But you will just have to listen to the show to find out how these all happened in 1996!
