The Monday Lineup #75: songs of the summer, a retrospective

i had originally planned to do this show on memorial day aka the real start of summer, but life got in the way. luckily, we had some pretty perfect and pretty uncharacteristically non-SF-type summer weather over the past day, so it's apropos to celebrate the summery tunes that have soundtracked my summers past and my picks for 2018!

these are the songs that bring about a feeling of possibility that is distinctly summer. the songs with that special type of energy you feel when you arrive to your 8pm radio shift and the sun is still shining.

also wtf how is it already mid june basically.
