I like pretty much everything you play. I grew up with disco, going to dances in 1972, then 1975 in discos. I didn't really go for the flash. Stopped going, as i progressed in school. That took precedence. When i went to uni in MTL, 1978, it was new wave going strong. I was listening to and finding out about jazz. Then, later, it was punk and "alternative" rock in the 80s. Free jazz. I didn't hear hip hop until 1989, and i didn't know that "Thriller" existed. Was in a parallel universe. Political activism, a mild variation. Today, i am catching up, electro, 80s house. Everything i missed out on. Because it would have been judged too commercial... It's not like that anymore. Thanks for what you do !
