It was actually this interest in letting people access different kinds of quality, non-mainstream music that led me to be a DJ for a few years around the turn of the century.
Hi Retro,

Being a DJ must have been a lot of fun !

Metta,

A bit of variation here from the predominantly indie and synth stylings of much of the countdown... it's my favourite reggae singer, Johnny Clarke.

So far the list has been great..... but Morrissey and the Smiths did nothing for me. I always thought that they tried to be too much like Joy Division. Morrissey was too whiny for me. Great music so far though.
