Spinning With Idols

April 10, 2009

Andy and I DJed over at River Gods on April 2. I know that a few of these are just guesses as to the track name (I wasn’t writing everything down like I do on radio since there’s no need to back announce without a microphone) and the years represent reissues used as opposed to recording dates, but here’s a list of what I spun.
