Like most everything else, Radio Free Athens has been impacted by the COVID-19 crisis. Although you won’t get to hear your favorite DJs on the air for a while, we will be supplying faithful listeners with playlists in the meantime. Find them below!


From R@T

I got some great feedback about the Muppets song I recently used so I started this list with one that my son Raad turned me on to. I have also been thinking about the idea of change so there are a few songs with that in mind.  Then there is some random stuff.

Happy summer!
The Muppets- Bohemian Rhapsody
David Bowie- Changes
Buddy Miles- Them Changes
Sam Cooke- A Change Is Gonna Come
Black Pumas- Black Moon Rising
Prince- Starfish and Coffee
Public Image Limited- Seattle
Pavement- Silence Kit
New Order- Restless
Urge Overkill- Girl You’ll Be a Woman Soon
From Michael T. 

Summer means the beach, and the beach means island music. 

Surprisingly, (and to my great disappointment), I hear some version of the following sentence from young people: “I’m not that familiar with reggae.” This week’s list is for you, and for the rest who remember. As always, thank you for listening.
