Station: What's Playing
Chris Davies, owner, Mid Island Ink Depot
1. Saturday Night Fever/The Bee Gees. This was one of my first introductions to disco music and the world of discotheques and lots of beer on a Saturday night and good memories. I wanted to be the John Travolta of the town.
2. Sultans of Swing/Dire Straights. I heard tracks from this album on a jukebox at a local cafe where I used to hang out and immediately became a lifelong fan.
3. Brothers in Arms/Dire Straights. This came out at a pinnacle stage in my retail career. I had moved across the UK and opened a brand new Superstore for a big British retail chain. It was time to grow up and work hard.

2. Out of Exile/Audioslave. Chris Cornell has the best male voice in rock and this for me was the super group of all super groups, creating music that was almost painfully emotional but also having the technical chops to blow just about anyone out of the water. There is no way of playing this music too loud.
3. Dave Brubeck's Greatest Hits/The Dave Brubeck Quartet. Hot west-coast Jazz that is technically rock solid, but also far more playful and less "artiste-ish" than the East Coast jazz of the same period. And check out Joe Morello's drum solo in Take Five. If that doesn't define Mid-Century Modern style in sound, nothing does.

1. The Love Club EP/Lorde. I really enjoy her fresh, unique sound.
2. Some Nights/Fun. All of their music has a fantastic enthusiastic quality to it, and I love being able to sing along with the lyrics.
3. Hybrid Theory/Linkin Park. My guilty pleasure! Their songs never fail to get me pumped and inspire my feet to pick up their pace during a run.
