I can highly recommend baking berry scones and playing music from the early 1990’s in a favorite old apron during your lunch hour. If you’d like to try it, too, you can have my recipe and my playlist. I’m keeping the apron, though 😜Read More: A Scone Recipe and an Early 90’s Playlist
Category: Polka Dot Radio
I used to run an Internet radio station at Live365 called Polka Dot Radio. I gave that up in 2008 and since then, I’ve gotten my fix for music sharing by creating playlists, first at 8tracks, and now at Spotify.
The original radio station had a tagline of
alt-folk, 1990's, and indie pop, and for the most part, that is still a pretty good description of my musical taste. My current playlists are heavy on the alt-folk / indie pop / alternative sound, with a smattering of favorites from other decades peppered in there.
You can play all of my virtual mix tapes and get more details about them in the posts below. Or, just shuffle one of these two playlists.
|Polka Dot Radio, which features a few days’ worth of tunes, spanning the stuff I was listening to in the late 80’s through to my current favorites. New music rotates in and out at the beginning of every month:||Polka Dot Radio Classic, which combines a bunch of the actual playlists that I used on the original radio station. This is a static playlist, and will not have any new music added to it:|
NOTE: I highly recommend listening to these playlists on Shuffle, otherwise you’ll get a lot of similar music clumped together. Shuffle will give you a better variety and more enjoyable listening experience.
Happy listening! 🎶
