Playlists from ''86

Hello all. Like many of you, my life changed significantly when I discovered the music of Starstreams. I was seeing a girl in high school and she turned me on to the music of Jarre, TDream and MS. While the girl didn't work out, I never let go of my interest in the music. MS aired on our local station here at 10pm Sunday nights from probably 1984 - 1988-ish. Over the past 30 years, this music has become a part of me.

Reading through the forums, early playlists seem to be highly sought after. Digging through some old boxes, I found several tapes of the show (yes, I taped the shows regularly) and I even wrote down some of the titles. I am amazed these lasted so long. Hopefully these lists help us fill the gaps in our memory as well as document the early years of the show. Enjoy!

[I apologize in advance for potential mis-spellings and any incompleteness. In most cases, I have only one hour of set lists from these episodes. These playlists come from circa 1986. The only playlist I can date with certainty is the 'Favorites' show from 1986. I happened to record Forest's announcing over the music on that episode]
