My Contribution to the Audio Yearbook Project – 1959

Jim Bricker reached out to the twitterverse to see if there would be any interest in doing a 90 minute virtual mix tape for each year from 1955 – 2020. I thought that sounded fun. I wanted to do 1977, the year I graduated High School but that year was taken so I picked my birth year, 1959.

Here is a link to my Spotify Play List.

And here is a list of the songs…
