DJ Sessions: In Sioux Falls, The '80s Live On

John and Heidi Small were told that it was a bad idea to start an all-’80s radio station.

But six years ago, the husband-wife team went ahead with their plan.

They run Sunny Radio in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and they speak with Here & Now‘s Jeremy Hobson about some of their favorite songs.


Note: We have a Spotify playlist and an Apple Music playlist for our weekly DJ Sessions.
