Upbeat music - variety with a slight tendency toward the electronic side of things. Jamtronica, electropop, dubstep, trance, 80’s new wave, 90’s indie, you name it. Also lots of remixes and mashups of your favorite songs from this year and yesteryear. 60’s on, but expect to hear lots of new music.

What were the skies like when you were young?
“They went on forever and they, when I, we lived in Arizona and the skies always had little fluffy clouds and they were long and clear and there were lots of stars at night, and when it rained it would turn, it, they were beautiful, the most beautiful skies as a matter of fact, the sunsets were purple and red and yellow and on fire and the clouds would catch the colors everywhere, that’s, it’s neat because I used to look at them all the time when I was little, you don’t see that. You might still see them in the desert.” -Ricky Lee Jones
