Hour 4
(For me, summertime during the '90s were spent doing all kinds of crazy work-related things, back when I was a young editor at Billboard. I particularly love the memory of dancing like a mad-man on a sweltering July night at the Sound Factory nightclub to "The Pressure" by Sounds of Blackness and "Make It Happen" by Mariah Carey. Pure catharsis.)

  1. Wow. This playlist is amazing. It's still too bad that this can't be a podcast too. But I understand the music licensing is an issue. Still it would make great listening all week long!!

    Thanks Larry for doing such a great show.
