Best of 90s Alternative

This music is just some of my favorites from the early 90s, around the time I was in my late teens and early 20s. Hearing it again gives me a chance to introduce some of my old favorites to my kids, who like to hear stories about what I was like before they were born. Hearing these songs transports me to a carefree time and is always the perfect cure for a bad day.

Good Morning from Texas!

Here's a little mix of my favorite music including some locals - straight from Texas! From rockabilly and alt country to trippy funk and rockin' guitars - this music gets me going in the morning and gets my bub, Lyle, dancing in his pj's!

Current Favorites

This mix doesn't really have any sensible order. Just lots of my favorite music by lots of my favorite bands. Anyone ever heard of Within Temptation? I HIGHLY recommend them!! I can't list all their songs on my playlist, because I play ALL of them, but I'll list their current US single. :)
