LunchBox 49 (80’s Mix)

Gregg Nyce LunchBox 49
First off, I’m an 80’s baby. To be more precise an I’m an 80 baby born in 1980. I thoroughly enjoy music spanning many decades and genres but the 80’s holds a special place in my ears. I can remember the first time hearing The Clash, Pet Shop Boys, and Information Society (to name a select few) on the radio at a young age. Over the years I began to dig deeper into their catalogs, their sub-genres, groups that influenced them, and so the rabbit hole goes. Mixing LunchBox 49 was easy and difficult at the same time. I couldn’t possibly put every song or group I wanted on the mix so this theme will likely become a series within the LunchBoxes, much like The Boomin’ In Ya Jeep mixes from time to time. Vinyl and mp3’s throughout, #49 hits 25 tracks in just over an hour. This is not a best of but there some hits so sit back, relax, and please enjoy responsibly! As always, head over to the Audio Page for more music.
