#66 – Theme: Grant&TwitterMix

Where were all the songs chosen from for tonight? The first few songs were chosen whilst we searched for Grant’s songs.

Remember Grant Harvie? He presented with me on NYE2018. I invited him to sit with me again last night. His songs of choice are denoted by an asterisks – ‘ *

A few nights back @ThatEricAlper asked on Twitter “What are the quintessential 80s songs?“.

I said: ‘Jump – Van Halen‘, then had a brilliant idea to ask “I’d love if somebody could compile all these songs for me – so I can set up a radio playlist...”

My friend @nethead tweeted that he had compiled and published the entire list. The songs I played are denoted by the plus-or-minus sign – ‘ ±
