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?

      any way we can trade some? I still have a bunch of Tym Ryan Thermos mixes on tape.

      • I unfortunately re-recorded over all of my Tym tapes when I was in college, and broke. Plus, why trade when we could just post them and share with the world? If you love something, set it free!

      any way I can get some copies? Dying to live the best days of my life.

    Amazing. Love to get a copy of this. I was a regular at X-night with Liquid Todd and others. John Debo, Tym Ryan and the rest of the residents. Best time of my life.
