Formerly the Class of '79 Reunion Mix, the Class of '79 Mixperience™ was inspired by my 30 year high school reunion of June 19/20, 2009, and especially by the personal project of one of my former classmates to put together a commemorative CD set composed of each alum's most memorable song of 1979. (Thanks, Suzy!)
The station began airing about a week and a half before the reunion. I originally planned to keep it going for only one month, Live365's minimum required broadcast period. But soon after I began broadcasting, the Live365 stats for the station showed that it was really taking off, due in no small measure to a good friend and fellow alum publicizing the station on his Facebook page. (Thanks, Dodd!)
The reach of the station now extends way beyond its initially intended listenership, so that what began as a month-long project to entertain a few dozen former classmates has since taken on a life of its own, with listeners from around the world tuning in. As long as people continue to enjoy the broadcast, and as long as I can afford the time to maintain the station, the Class of '79 Mixperience™ will keep streaming. Thanks for listening!
