Episode 40 kicks off with a brand new track from the amazing Blake Mills, and before the tape runs out with an old jam from Howlin' Wolf, you'll hear some Baker, Joe Tex, Roman Ruins, Walter Mitty, PHOX, Los Angeles Police Department, Ings, Will Johnson and a whole bunch more (21 tunes in total). In other words, it's another ace 1 hour soundtrack to put on during any time of the day when you're in need of just that.
So press play and enjoy (and if you do enjoy these mix tapes, word on the street is that you can vote for HI54LOFI as your favourite radio show IN THE WORLD).
If you like what you hear, it'd be really great if you could hit those Heart & Share buttons, as well as pass this show around on Twitter and Facebook and Tumblr and to anyone you may know that has the same fine taste in music as you. And don't forget to subscribe on iTunes, as you can download all episodes there for free (this one will be up later in the week). Cheers!

And of course, you can always swing by the HI54LOFI Mixcloud page and listen to all 40 episodes of the 'Mix Tape Radio' show. And/Or, swing by iTunes and download the last 39 shows for FREE / subscribe to all future episodes (Episode 40 will be going up on iTunes in about a week… so it wouldn't be a bad idea to click the subscribe button while you're there, no?).
And don't forget… there is also the 24hr stream of tunes that is the Mix Tape Radio internet radio station (where, at some point, you'll hear most of these songs + a whole bunch of others in the pretty big and always getting bigger rotation of quality tuneage). Oh yeah… you'll also find a lot of these tunes (and whole bunch of other gems) on the 'Bandcamp Radio' I recently (re)setup.
Finally, please remember to remember the following: music makes all our lives a bit more bearable, but the continued making of that music requires all of us listeners to give a little love back. Whether that be by buying what we like, sharing a metaphorical pint, or even just the simple act of spreading the word / letting the artist know how much you dig it, anything beyond silent appreciation goes a long way.
