Omoi Radio: Prom Edition

Inspired by my mom likening the closing of the Pine store to sending a kid off to college: our 15-year-old is growing up, so I bring you PROM SONGS: OMOI CLASS OF 2006, some of our favorite and most played in-store bangers from the last 15, plus a sappy ending.

Our playlist cover photo is kind of sentimental to me, I think it’s from the first week of business, taken with a Lomo fisheye that I sold. I think many, many customers have seen me set up at the desk with my laptop.

Enjoy.
