Same As It Ever Was is a music show set in the singular decade of the 1980’s, focused via the gaze of a black gay 20-something poet. Curated by me, DJ Jam E.Z (aka: Apollolypstic), and culled from my personal collection, selections may jump genre yet remain firmly within the period. You will hear The Smiths and The The, but you may also hear Edie Brickell, Anita Baker, or Enya. That said, at the core is an attempt to share with you, the Listener, the joy this music brought to my life. There is strength in this artwork that helped me and others survive the bloody eighties! Maybe it can help us continue to survive!
