Two years ago I decided to curate a playlist of music that came out in my birth year, 1977. It was one of the best musical journeys I had ever taken up to that point. In the process of making that list I started getting songs that I loved but unfortunately overlapped into 1978. Realizing that was the birth year of Mariam, I decided I would start to compile a list for her own birth year playlist. As the months past I kept adding to it, and then realized I missed her birthday that year. But the past month and several few days I have been hard at work putting the final touches so I can finally deliver the playlist on her birthday.
Mariam, Like your sign, these are the stars you were born under. These songs are all your distant siblings quietly (not anymore) sharing every birthday with you. I hope you find something when exploring all of this.
Happy Birthday Mariam

A year ago I set out to curate a comprehensive look at music from my birth year. What I found changed my impression of the 70s, most of it anyway, I couldn’t get away from several classics. I update the mix periodically, so listen, subscribe and enjoy 1977, my birthday gift to you.
My band Los Détroit and our Killing EP is available today everywhere and #spotify #music
My band’s EP is now up on Spotify. Give it a play and a rate it you’re feeling limber.
Looks like I’ve started a cassette collection.
For years been laughing at these bands releasing albums on tape. Well I stopped laughing when Windy and Carl announced this live from Tucson with hand painted art cassette. I thought back and remembered this half size tape deck Radio Shack sold in the 80s and found it on eBay. The tone of cassette really brings me back. It’s comfortable and familiar. I can’t think of anything else more fitting to play on this for a first run.
