12063467_1619144981682929_5217370863550597749_n Coming fresh off the high that is my oft-favorite DJing trip to the Pacific Northwest, I couldn’t wait to clip together some of the great songs that I played for such a swinging audience.

Given I have a somewhat foggy memory of what I played that night, I’m going through the order of which I restacked 45s and LPs in my box to remember how it all panned out. First up to share is my 2nd set that I’m calling “Northern Exposure.” It features my own selection of Mid 60’s “Northern Soul” orientated songs from approximately 1965 through 1968.
