My Musical Evolution – Part 278 Roach Days Revisited

Wow, as I write this, we are just a couple of days away from the end of September. I have been doing this Musical Evolution project for nearly nine full months. The post number tells me that I’m statistically ahead of one post per day. Here again I find myself wondering if I should have […]

My Musical Evolution – Part 269 Roach Days Revisited More Party Mixes

Was it the 1980’s itself changing or where we just growing up? The women’s fashion, ever evolving, ever changing, started to become somewhat more mature. The hair was still pretty large but had come down a few notches since 1983. The glitz purple and green eye shadow faded into a more natural smolder. The bright […]
