A Drive 105 Playlist?

Twin Cities alternative radio station Drive 105, which had a five year run on the airwaves, may have now been gone for almost as long as it existed but today I happened across an 81 video YouTube playlist featuring just some of the rather unique flavor of alternative rock songs which the station featured.

The YouTube user who put this playlist together either has a fabulous memory or kept some sort of spreadsheet chronicling the interesting brand of alternative rock music which was put together for the station's small but somewhat loyal fan base.

Cool stuff that brings back more than a few memories with bands like The Bravery, Low Millions, Weezer, The Kooks, The Killers, Pete Yorn, Tegan and Sara, The Dresden Dolls, The Strokes and artists I had completely forgotten about like Rock Kills Kid, Luce, The Features, Agent Sparks, Razorlight and of course local favorite and The Voice alum Tim Mahoney!

Funny -- I've missed this station immensely. I did a search for some information about them today, in hopes to find a music list (There is a specific song I can't remember the name of) and came across the same playlist. Making my whole day at work!
