Occupy The Airwaves Greatest Hits!

After breaking our 70 show mark, Matt and I decided to make a summer mixtape of some of the best songs we’ve played over the semesters. This is a collection of songs, each of which we played roughly 5+ weeks in a row because they were just so damn good. In other words, this is a mixtape of college radio’s best rock songs of the past two and a half years, so feel free to mix and match and make your own summer playlist!
