DJ Sessions: Golden Summer Oldies

Today we’re listening to summer oldies with DJ Mike Haile, more commonly known by his DJ moniker “Mike in the Morning,” at WHMS in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois. Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson used to listen to him when he was growing up in the area.

Haile says “Summertime” by Billy Stewart is his all-time favorite summer song, but there are so many others, including “That Sunday, That Summer” by Nat King Cole, “Summer In The City” by Lovin’ Spoonfull” and the Beach Boys’ “All Summer Long.” Haile joins us for a conversation about songs of the season and why they resonate.


Note: We now have a Spotify playlist for our weekly DJ Sessions segment. The playlist will be updated each week with new songs. Spotify is free to use, but requires a login.
