As our 25th birthday approaches, we at the station have been asking ourselves, “What was playing on the mainstream airwaves in the weeks leading up to our debut in 1989?” After 10 minutes of fierce googling, we found the songs most frequent on the frequencies back 25 Februaries ago. Be warned; we never said it would be pretty (except for maybe in the case of Duran Duran).
Finally able to be heard from the radio, Sit or Spin was fun and sassy tonight. Thanks to all the callers, tweeters and listeners!
