80s New Wave / Alternative Songs Mixtape Volume 1

80s New Wave / Alternative Songs Mixtape Volume 1

The first in a series of compilations of some of the best alternative and new wave 80s songs that I have chosen to put together in a digital version of the old school mixtape.

Listener/fan note - This is the same playlist that appeared on our hugely successful Youtube channel and has gathered over 3.5 million views before it was blocked for copyright issues.

I could listen to all of your mixes everyday.


Hello again from RVA. Sitting up in my bed loving your mix and looking forward to the Echo and Bunnymen upcoming tour!

Generic Male DJs

That tour should be a good one, the Violent Femmes opening is a bonus!


Greetings from RVA (Richmond, VA)...Thank you for saving all your amazing mixes that I found and cherished on YT!!! I feared that I had lost them forever....

Generic Male DJs

We are all about exploring new ways to share these great songs. YT is a bit of a pain, sometimes, but we are going to support both the YT and Mixcloud formats as much as we can, thanks for making the transition!

Kenneth A Gilbert
