Friday Night 90's

I want you to close your eyes and imagine a different time and place.

 

In this place that you are attempting to envision, I'd like you to picture flannel shirts, Doc Martens, ripped jeans, and bleached hair... Have you got it? Now, how are these clothes cut? Are they fitted like the fashions of today, or do you see sloppy, oversized clothing from the land of wide leg pants, backwards baseball hats, and XXL No Fear shirts?

 

Welcome to Friday Night 90's! Every Friday night, you can join me, your host LaRocque, from seven til nine - where we will jump into the musical time machine, adventuring back to an age where MTV still played music videos (Road Rules was as reality TV as it got), movies weren't all comic book franchises, and going to the airport wasn't a colossal pain in the ass!

 

So jumpstart your Tamagotchis, dust off those Beanie Babies, and fire up that 64 for a game of Goldeneye! Sure, Ross didn't end up with Rachel, Jack died in the freezing North Atlantic, and Y2K was a huge letdown, but Homer is still employed at the Nuclear Plant, Big Kahuna makes a tasty burger, and OJ ended up in jail after all! From Seattle to Manchester, Toronto to L.A. - and now Ferndale to your radios, we're about to take a trip through musical history, soaking up the sweet sounds we all know, and remember (or at least kind of remember...) As a great 90's educator once said;

 

 

What you've just said....is one of the most insanely idiotic things I've ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response was there anything that could even be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.”- high school principal from Billy Madison
