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


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.
