Comment:

This mix explores the odd years from when I was first born in 1955 till 1979. Each year has a pop and an R&B tune presented. Many of these were favorites of mine while I was growing up (teen years or earlier), such as tracks 1, 5, and most of 13-20. Many of the R&B selections didn't become favorites until long after their release, since I didn't know how much I really loved R&B until sometime during the past four years.
