AOR On The Radio Part 2 by Professor Eddy



"The beautiful Kieran White track on your blog inspired me to make a follow-up to AOR On the Radio," says Professor Eddy. "What I like about Westcoast /AOR music  is that a lot of singer-songwriters drew from all kinds of different styles to make it sound as good (or as smooth) as possible. The mix I put together gives me the feeling of driving around at sunset in Los Angeles before going out and getting drunk on a Saturday night. The atmosphere of the tracks is mostly melancholic, but the disco starts up later on. My favourite track is 'Mushanga' by Toto. It may sound like an instant replay of their classic 'Africa', but Jeff Porcaro plays the drums so amazingly and I'm always touched by this song about a New York magazine writer falling for 'a Capetown girl  with no shoes.'"  Thanks to Mr Funk from the Oslo Nerd Army for giving me some new ideas for the setlist."
