My Final 80s Spectrum shows (January 2019)

'80s Spectrum is a show that's been on WXCI since long before I started at the station in 2002.

The show had many hosts over the years up until its hiatus starting in 2014.

The student center became inaccessible for a brief period in May 2017, and so I decided to throw together a series of "80s Spectrum" mixes since the station felt lacking in '80s music representation. It was way more fun than expected, and the mixes continued throughout the summer.

The unannounced mixes aired on Thursday nights from May 2017 until summer 2018. I hosted and announced songs intermittently, but did not host or announce consistently until summer 2018, which continued until January 2019. I started experiencing some radio fatigue, and so I decided to end my '80s Spectrum tenure, but not until after one last re-visiting of Pitchfork's top 200 albums of the '80s list from September 2018. (I also went through their 2002 list of '80s albums over a span of 10-12 weeks during my rotation shift in Spring 2010.)

Tonight was/is my last time hosting this show. (It's on now.) My version of the show might return in the future. Here are the final few playlits...

(I possibly lost the playlist from January 3, 2019, but the audio has all be captured I'll post the playlists here after it all gets posted to the Late Night Noise mixcloud account at some point in 2019.)
