guest DJ set list (June 17, 2021) - Electro & Synthpop

Thanks to ffog for inviting me to guest-DJ again on his weekly internet radio show, Myocyte.
The mix was "simulcast" on anonradio and tilderadio, and has been archived by anonradio (scroll down to "Ffog - Pleasure & Discomfort Myocyte"). An mp3 version of the mix is here: [1 hr mp3] (The show was broadcast at 1 am on June 18 UTC, which is 8 pm Central, June 17, in the US.)

While the tracks were playing I "announced" via text chat on the #sally and #tilderadio channels on IRC (Internet Relay Chat). Listeners could comment or ask questions. This is an interesting way to DJ, very different from my old FM radio days and a few steps up aesthetically from having everyone's data and souls leeched out on spotify, etc.

The mix compiles some favorite movie soundtrack excerpts (and a couple of TV shows), emphasizing sad, minor-key tunes, sequencers and "the '80s."
All but four songs (*) were first heard while watching the movie and hunted down because they were so ear-grabbing. (The films are good, too.)
