Flight Facilities Triple J mix 2: 1982 - 1992

Update 6.2.13: It's back!

In case you missed it last year, Flight Facilities were Triple J's Saturday night mix residents for October - they made 4 mixes, each one covering a different decade. (This second one is 1982 - 1992). 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 here. 

And so, round 2, ding ding! Let the Flight Facilities awesomeness continue with a super 80s buzz. They've added sweet images to the download file too so if you're listening on itunes or similar make sure to turn on the artwork feature.
