*Background music consisted of various cult classic tunes from the 1980s. They ranged from Echo & The Bunnymen to Phil Collins, from cheesy to epic, covering multiple genres.

If you ever wanted to hear some of the best alternative acts shred heavy on guitars, then this edition of Never Mind the Mainstream was for you. Every week, we seem to stumble upon an unofficial theme, but this week, we had no complaints as we spun some epic tracks featuring magnificent guitar work. New music via of Spoon, Dinosaur Jr., The Drums, Sea Wolf, and Matt & Kim brought out the diversity of this great college radio show. We also had Bruce doing "Seaside Bar Song" in our "Boss-Tune", M. Ward and Zooey Deschanel tackling Buddy Holly's "Rave On" in our cover, and our "Punk Trunk!", which came about early, showcased some third-wave ska and New York City punk legends. On the next edition of NMTM, Jim takes the show under his wing and flies solo, as I will be venturing into the heartland of PA to attend a wedding. Tune in next week for another great set!

Exploding Hearts - "Modern Kicks"

The Drums - "Let's Go Surfing"

The Good Life - "Notes In His Pockets"

P.S. We also harassed our shadower, Lauren, throughout most of the show. If you want to be in radio, you got to put up with the crazies. And we're just the introductory crazies.
