Finally 21: The Mix Tape

One of the perks of having grown up in the pre-digital age of the 1980’s means I have an appreciation for that old standard of analog communication…the mix tape. Mix tapes were all of the things you couldn’t say with words, said with songs and neatly packaged onto a cassette tape deck. (Didn’t we have the BEST music back then?)

As we round out Elevate97’sAnniversary Month,” I’ve created a little playlist of my own to help celebrate the occasion. In no particular order, these are some of the songs that are specific to the memories we’ve shared here at Elevate97 over the years. There are a few gems from the 80’s as well as today and some are the songs I listen to to get myself and my teams pumped up. All of them tell the story of our history and speak to the grit, determination, integrity and love we share for the people and brands we ELEVATE.
