After his long absence, longtime fans of Steve Perry are thrilled at the former Journey frontman's return with the brand new solo album, Traces. I recently sat down with Perry to talk about his hiatus, what brought him back, and the process of making music again.

With his status as such an iconic vocalist, I also thought it’d be fun to hear Perry talk about some of his favorite singers. So check out this 8Track session as Steve Perry takes over WFUV as Guest DJ. Listen tonight during The Alternate Side on FUV at 9 p.m., or anytime below.

  • Sam Cooke - “Cupid”
  • Gladys Knight & The Pips - “Neither One of Us”
  • Marvin Gaye - “Ain’t That Peculiar”
  • Led Zeppelin - “Good Times, Bad Times”
  • Big Brother and The Holding Company - “Piece of My Heart”
  • Sarah McLachlan - “Angel”
  • Lloyd Price - “Stagger Lee”
  • The Four Tops - “Baby I Need Your Lovin’”
