Listen: AGDFA / HOS / DW 90s Classique Special Extravaganza!

Posted on November 22, 2011 |

Ahhhhhhhhhhh the 90’s.

A time when the Information Age blossomed to what it is today and where flannel
was a valid fashion choice.

It’s also the decade in which my music taste was formed.

Back in September, my bros (Omar from CJLO’s Hooked On Sonics and Denis from Dirty Work) and I did this 4 hour radio session of strictly 90’s alternative
, coming from an idea yours truly had of expanding on Omar’s 90’s Classique segment on his show.

Pretty much all of our favorites made the cut. From seminal Grunge bands like
Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Soundgarden, Canadian bands near and dear to our hearts or one hit wonders like Star 69.

This is a good primer for the youngins outthere who barely came to be around that time or for old foggies like us, who want to reminisce about the good old days.

As I said jokingly on the air that night, we do have exceptional taste in music so
clearly you’ll get something out of it.

I’ve split the show in two mp3 files with a setlist for each.

The fun shall prevail, as we are planning a part deux for this whole insanity to
continue early next year.
