I was thinking of postponing the 51st episode of this here Mix Tape Radio show a week or so, in order to try and use my limited amount of free time to get the recently cancelled 24hr internet radio station back up and running, but then I realized that even if I postponed things, I still wouldn't have enough time to get a new radio station up and running. So instead of starting this week off with nothing to offer you for putting in your earholes, I got up early yesterday and filled my hours with coffee and good tunes, and put together this…
Episode 51 kicks off with an acoustic version from a band with a long long long name and closes out with a 'previously unreleased, momentarily released, once again unreleased' Shakey Graves tune. In between those you'll hear new Sufjan, old Two Gallants, 2014 Hiss Golden Messenger, and a bunch more. So I'll stop listing and you get listening.
If you like what you hear, it'd be real cool of you if you hit those Heart & Share buttons, as well as pass this show around on Twitter and Facebook and Tumblr and Anywhere Else and to Anyone Else 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!

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 to those making it. 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. Basically, anything beyond silent appreciation goes a really long way.
