7/28/16: 180 Minutes Of 120 Minutes (Part 2)

120

Once again, 180 minutes of 120 Minutes on the Fuzz Factory. As I mentioned last week, there are so many good song to play I decided to break it down according to the years the videos for these songs aired on the show. Part 2 featured songs from 1991-1996, what I would say were the golden years of alternative rock.

For me, these years were perhaps the best of my lifetime. These years were my first years out of college. In those days, I was buying a lot of music and seeing a lot of concerts. I still have many vivid rock & roll memories from those years.

Another 180 Minutes Of 120 Minutes

Tonight is the second in a four part series featuring the playlists from the groundbreaking MTV show 120 Minutes. As I mentioned last week, there are so many good song to play I decided to break it down according to years. The years the videos for these songs aired on the show. This is also likely (not always) the year the song was first released. Tonight, I’m playing songs from 1991-1996, which are probably the golden years of alternative rock.

Make sure to tune in tonight, 8-11 PM (EST) on SCAD-Atlanta Radio (www.scadatlantaradio.org).

Please note, after tonight, there will be no Fuzz Factory the next two weeks. I’ll be on vacation in Alaska and Vancouver.

Here’s a sample of what you might hear tonight:

7/21/16: 180 Minutes Of 120 Minutes (Part 1)

120min1

Did you watch 120 Minutes on MTV? I did. Pretty regularly too, especially in the 90’s. One of my regular listeners suggest 120 Minutes as a show theme. I thought it was a fantastic idea. The only problem, so many songs to choose from, how would I fit it all on one show. There are so many good song to play I decided to break it down according to the years the videos for these songs aired on the show. The first week featured songs from 1986-1991.

I hope you relived some good memories. For me these years were the end of high school and college.
