Stuck In Thee Garage #161: January 20, 2017

Twenty years can make a big difference. On January 20, 1997, Bill Clinton was sworn in for his second term as president. Today, well, you know. This week on Stuck In Thee Garage, I played songs from 1997 in hour 2. It was an interesting year for alternative music, as grunge faded away and different sounds were starting to emerge.
