This is as special of an episode as you’ll ever get on this podcast. It’s a tribute to the club night that got me into house music, and nightclubs, and dance music culture. It’s SPIN CYCLE, the longest running DJ residency in Boston nightclub history!!!! In this extra long 3-hour edition we dig through all of the old tracks that DJ Tym Ryan used to play on Friday nights on Lansdowne Street.

Hint: they are all bangers.

Post your Spin Cycle memories in the comments below. Can we have a reunion in Boston PLEASE?
