I went to high school in the suburbs of salt lake city. Fortunately, my school had a radio station and my best friend and I had a radio show. We didn't have the best selection of music, but we made do.Now that I go to college in a different state, I don't get to see her as often as I would like so I made this mix to remember those good old radio shows.
