Putting Episode 4 of this year’s Summer Mixtape series together felt like I had just emerged from The Time Tunnel with James Darrin, arriving at Rt. 33 in Neptune, NJ in the mid-80s… and it was my night to spin records. I swear I could actually smell the DJ Booth and needed to look around the Basement Studio to make sure nobody was passed out. It was a glorious time indeed, but we knew even while it was happening that these would be the days we longed for if we managed to get old. Not all of us did, and this episode is dedicated to two of the finest, J.T. Copulous and Chopper. Bob “Chopper” Kopcho was already a star DJ in the Jersey Club scene by the time WHTG got off the ground in 1984. It was he and J.T. that kept popping up in my head and I was hoping they were tuned in from the Afterparty. This episode is just shy of 5 hours and there are no interruptions. If you are looking for a soundtrack of exactly what an Alternative Rock Dance Club sounded like in 1985, well you just found it. There will be one more episode to wrap up the Summer of 2023, but for now just turn it up and dance.
