BwGN AM Mixtape #53 – The one that acts its age, w/ Amanda G.

Cosmic Amanda‏, founder and station manager of, makes a rare appearance on the early airwaves as my guest this week. On this delightfully schizophrenic show about aging and nostalgia, Amanda plays bangers off her "Cape Cod 1987: The Year of Maturity" + "8th Grade Dance in the K of C Basement" mixtapes and I play moody tunes related to our theme.
