Flight Facilities Triple J mix 1: 1972 - 1982

This just about sums up how I feel about Flight Facilities.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: everything Flight Facilities does makes me happy. They are Triple J's Saturday night mix residents for October so they've made 4 mixes, each one covering a different decade. (This first one is 1972 - 1982). They have gone to amazing lengths for each mix, each set is chronological in order with classic tunes and modern edits, and cut with news reports of the time so it's like an awesome musical history lesson. They have been putting them together since April, and you can check out the insane amount of research they did hereWell played FF:
