EPISODE 107 | THE MIX TAPE RADIO SHOW
The Mix Tape Radio Show is a series of digital mix tapes that I’ve been putting together on Mixcloud for more than a few sporadic years; sometimes there were new episodes every 2nd week, sometimes there was nothing for months. Having a music blog is sketch like that.
So, in an attempt to find a routine that (hopefully) makes it more likely to get a new mix tape out the door every week, I've decided to combine a few different tasks/blog features into one. And since I started doing a weekly feature called "SHUFFLE UP'D EIGHT" to highlight eight tracks from a recent HI54 Mix CD shuffle update, I figured I could start mixing those 8 tracks into a nice mix tape every Monday. Boom! Multiple birds, one stone.
So, without any further ado-ing, here is EPISODE 107 of THE MIX TAPE RADIO SHOW:
…which has been created by shuffling up the much bigger than 8 tracks/artists selection currently making up the HI54 Mix CD ‘420 ≠ ALL DAY’ — which features 420 total tracks (because that’ll play for 24hrs straight without repeating a track/artist) and which just so happens to get 54 new tracks rotated in at the start of every month (so follow on Spotify or Soundsgood for future updates/listens)

As always… if you find your ears enjoying what they’re hearing, there are some pretty decent odds that following HI54LOFI over on Mixcloud for future/more episodes would not be the worst use of one of your internet clicks today. And it probably wouldn’t be too bad idea to follow/shuffle thru the rest of the HI54 Mix CD that this week’s Mix Tape Radio Show episode was created from.
ALSO: HI54LOFI was accepted into the Mixcloud Select program, which means you can now support the making of these mix tapes & the artists included on them with a monthly subscription — if you’d be interested in something like that (or nobody would be mad at you if you’d prefer to make a one-time “thanks for the stuff” donation of your choice over here instead).
And finally… if you hear something you like in this latest episode (or just in general out on the internets today), make sure to check out the people further and show them a little bit of love / support / appreciation — because everybody wins if we all start sharing some more metaphorical coffees/beers with the people making the things that we enjoy. Every little bit counts.
