I may have only ever broadcast on The Fix, but my short stint as a DJ during my senior year at Michigan State left a lasting impression. My only regret: I didn’t get involved earlier (as in as soon as I hit MSU’s campus as a freshman). I came across this video created for The Impact’s 30th anniversary, and it brought back all kinds of wonderful memories.
The Fix is the online training radio station for The Impact 89 FM: MSU’s student radio station.
As soon as I watched the video, I thought of how much fun I had playing Modest Mouse, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the Strokes, My Chemical Romance, the White Stripes – among so many others. I thought of all the late nights and early mornings I put in just for pure fun. Count me among the many misfits that just loved music. They give us a shout out in the video. How did I forget how much I love alternative? This list sums up some of my favorites from high school and college.
