A Note:

Radio legend Dusty Street is our guest for today's Monday Mix. For those that are unfamiliar, Dusty was one of the first women DJs on the radio airwaves. Starting out in San Francisco underground radio, Dusty eventually wound up working at the legendary KSAN, where she spent the next ten years. The "world famous" KROQ in Los Angeles would be the next stop for Street, and radio in the '80s was reborn thanks to the sound of trailblazing stations like KROQ, and personalities like Street, Richard Blade, Freddy Snakeskin, Jed The Fish, etc. These days, Dusty Street is right here in Cleveland, broadcasting live from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame each day on Sirius XM where you can hear her from 11am-4pm EST on the Classic Vinyl channel.

With today's mix, Dusty shares an hour's worth of her holiday favorites that you won't want to miss.  Enjoy!

About Today's Mix:

I started out with 2 songs that have been covered many times but I'm an original kinda gal. Lord Buckley is one of the most talented and under exposed artists around. His story telling gives a different window into the legends we all know.The Nazz was perfect for Christmas. Pilgrim Travelers are a great gospel group and what's Christmas without gospel? These are some of my favorite 80's xmas songs because I hate traditional Christmas crap and the mix winds up with a truly great cover of the Beatles song "Tomorrow Never Knows."

Happy Holidays and let's just get through it before the fake kindness kills us.
