Generation X with Gabrielle: The 1993 Mix Tapes

It’s the first Thurs­day of the month and that means it’s time for Gen X with Gabi, my long-run­ning show of music from the 1980s and 1990s when Gen­er­a­tion X ruled Pop Cul­ture!

This mon­th’s show is a part of the New Toulouse Fête des Lumières (Fes­ti­val of Lights), which is our com­mu­ni­ty’s week long cel­e­bra­tion cen­tered on Imbolc. Most Amer­i­cans have no idea what Imbolc means, but if you ask them to define Ground­hog’s Day, they can give you the answer imme­di­ate­ly! The real­i­ty is that Imbolc and Ground­hog’s Day have the same ancient roots. Feb­ru­ary 2 is the half way point between the Win­ter Sol­stice and the Spring Equinox, and Sum­mer and Autumn Down Under.

The now icon­ic movie “Ground­hog Day”, star­ring Bill Mur­ray, is a Gen­er­a­tion X clas­sic, and was released in 1993. There will be a nod to the movie dur­ing Gen X tonight, how­ev­er tonight’s pro­gram will about be an 18 year rewind of music, instead of a 24 hour rewind of a sin­gle day.

I was a prodi­gious Mix Tape cre­ator back in the day (I am sure you are shocked), and I was espe­cial­ly pro­duc­tive in 1993. I still have those Mix Tapes. They are actu­al­ly sit­ting in the side shelf of my desk as I type this. There­fore, tonight I will bring you selec­tions from my actu­al 1993 Mix Tapes for our homage to Gen­er­a­tion X.

Please tune in this evening on Radio Riel’s Main stream from 5:30pm — 7:00pm Pacif­ic Time to lis­ten to the pro­gram, or if you are in Sec­ond Life, please join me at The Edi­son Ball­room for danc­ing and social time in New Toulouse Bour­bon (, which is the new per­ma­nent loca­tion of the Gen X with Gabi show inside of Sec­ond Life.
