What I've been thinking about...
"Three MC's and One DJ"
RIP Adam Yauch aka MCA of the Beastie Boys. Somehow I went from an occasional listener in the late 80s and 90s to someone who knew the library and listened to something of theirs on shuffle just about daily. I’d assert there was some inherent quality in their music that gave it staying power in my playlists. MCA you will be missed.
Here’s a good track from the 90s (I think) including Mixmaster Mike’s message to Adam’s answering machine.
