Dad Rock Classics of the 70s and 80s (Volume 1)
The ’70s and ’80s were exciting and explosive times for rock music. New amalgams were being forged, class and color lines were being crossed, and entirely new genres were being formed out of whole cloth. 
This mix has nothing to do with that shit.
This is about men playing guitars. You might detect occasional groove — funk, swing, or shuffle — but for the most part this is straight-up guitar-driven white boy rock n’ roll. These jams recall the halcyon days of FM radio and MTV, before the latter started catering to “fringe groups” (i.e., playing Michael Jackson). This mix is the soundtrack to driving way too fast — preferably a 1978 Trans Am filled to the T-tops with open containers and girls with feathered hair. A summer mix right on time for the beginning of Fall. 
So download this mix, dub it onto a Maxell XL-II, and go get into some trouble. Or, if you prefer to spotify rather than download, you can listen to the mix here. A caveat, though: we’ve had to make some substitutions in the spotify version, as they don’t have some of the essentials like Def Leppard or AC/DC (the horror).
We’ve got two more editions of Dad Rock in the works, and then we’ll move on to exposing lost hits of other genres, including AOR/Yacht Rock classics (your Fogelbergs and your Halls & Oateses), hair metal, funk and disco, dirtbag rock, pub rock and punk, and more. So stay tuned!
