OSW: The Feelgood Mix

All I needed was Advil and some sleep, and that’s when it hit me. Randy Crawford, Caron Wheeler, Ephraim Lewis, Deja, Shanice, Marvin, Pebbles, Lil’ Louis, and more….

OSW: New Wave

Xquizzy1 requested it again, so how could I refuse? New Wave in the mix, from Tommy Tutone to Kano, from Level 42 to Human League. Enjoy.

OSW: EJ’s Request Line, Volume 1

I asked for Lisa Lisa, Whodini, and Big Daddy Kane, but Xquizzyt1 didn’t stop there……Art Of Noise, Stetsasonic, LL Cool J, and more….

OSW: The Lynneluvah Mix

It’s all about Lynne D. Johnson, people. Lalah to the Crusaders, D-Train to Teena, Lisa Stansfield to Expose.

OSW: Will’s Birthday Mix

No theme, just tracks. From Gary to Patrice, from Shanice to Michael Franks. All over the place.

OSW: Summer Cooldown

It’s hot outside. Time to chill out. Debarge, Chi-Lites, Stevie, Lionel, Gwen Guthrie, Pebbles.

OSW: Summertime Hip Hop, Volume II

It’s summertime and the living is easy. Summertime Hip Hop, Volume 2.

OSW: Summertime Hip Hop

Hip Hop in the summertime. 3rd Bass, D Nice, EPMD, LONS, Three Times Dope, and more.

OSW: The Gauntlet, Volume 1.

These are cuts that I’m sure everyone can vibe to that have either not hit the charts or have placed on or below the top 20. Here we go. You remember these? Classic cuts. Groove to this.

OSW: The Cancer Ladies

From the Cancer women, Yolanda and **RPM**. The traditional definition of old school. LTD, Rick James, and Al Jarreau, to name a few.

OSW: The Xquizzyt1 Mix: Dancehall II

Xquizzyt1 presents a dancehall mix, part 2. Looks like I’m more familiar with these than I thought, which is a good thing.

OSW: Ballads From The Other Side

Melanin not required. Simply Red, REO Speedwagon, and George Michael just to name a few….

OSW: The Freaky Mix

Da Butt? Freak Like Me? Poison? Oh, those are just three out of 20. I present to you….the freaky mix.

OSW: The End of Spring

Spring is near it’s end. Closing out this Old School Wednesday with a little England vibe (Loose Ends, Soul II Soul), mellow (Zhane, Mary J. Blige) and upbeat (Heavy D, Club Nouveau)…all in the space of 45 minutes. Think I did okay?

OSW: Xquizzyt1: The Dancehall Mix

Now I know nothing about dancehall. At all. I’ve never seen these tracks before either, so I’ll have to put this question out there- what’s the thrill of dancehall music? I think I need a little education, people.
