I’ve been doing this show for almost seven years, and there’s only a few episodes left! So I’ve decided to play some of my favorite tracks from way back… Starting with this week, with songs from 2009-2010, back when Overnight Sensation was still in its infancy! Hear early songs from now-famous groups like TWERPS! TOTAL SLACKER! DIRTY FENCES! And a ton of straight-up classics from bands that I’ve played over and over like NUNPARTY, SCOTT DEADELUS, and SWIMSUIT! I wish I could play even more, but so much is lost in time, you wouldn’t even believe it!
