Mixtape

The idea is to create a new mixtape on-air, utilizing a variety of formats, crossing most genre lines.  I periodically invite guests to make their own mixtape with me in the studio to keep things fresh, and to broaden the musical experience from 3-4pm on Sunday afternoons (with the exception of the last Sunday of every month). 

Thanks for listening.
