Strawberry Skies Presents: Pre-Summer Jams 2022
Updated: Jul 26
Welcome back to Strawberry Skies! I know it's been a while since we've posted, and if you don't listen to us on the radio/follow us on social media you probably think we've been gone for even longer, so allow me (Jen) to explain.
For the final few weeks of the last semester of my freshman year at Quinnipiac, I invited some of my friends to be guests on the Strawberry Skies Weekly Jams radio show - that's why there hasn't been a "weekly jams" playlist on here in a while. Huge shoutout to Connor Youngberg, Emily McManaman, Jack Spiegel, Mike Singer, Ben Yeargin, and Mike LaRocca for helping out with that. I can't wait to have more guests next semester!
I also made the decision to retire the "monthly jams" playlists on this site, at least during the school year, since I'm already putting out playlists every week when we're on the air. Instead of monthly playlists when the show is not active, I'll be putting out themed playlists every few weeks to continue to keep you in the loop about what I'm listening to!
This brings me to the playlist I'm sharing with you all today - the Strawberry Skies Pre-Summer Jams playlist! I put together a list of my favorite new releases from late spring/early summer/the past few weeks and months to create my perfect soundtrack for the end of school and the start of summer. I hope you love it!
One last piece of news before we get into it - I'm also one of the new music managers for WQAQ 98.1 FM - The Soundtrack of Quinnipiac University! If you are an artist or represent one and want your music played on the radio, feel free to email us with your genre, "for fans of" list, and a few of your clean songs. Looking forward to bringing even more of the sweetest tunes to the QU airwaves. Anyway, here's that pre-summer playlist I promised!
