"I stayed up all night to make this mixtape right."
Do you remember the days of perfecting the perfect playlist? Are there songs that take you back to high school, or middle school, or college? Did you ever make the perfect mixtape for a crush?
In "Midnight Radio," Nicholas Altobelli harnesses the nostalgia of what the playlist used to be, recalling the harrowing moments by the radio waiting for one's favorite song and reminiscing about the days when one's IM away message was just a series of deep, profound song lyrics. In this episode, Emmeline and Nicholas talk about the simplicity of songwriting, the importance of listening to music when making music, and how the bands we love shape the people we become. They also take a trip down Millennial memory lane!
