It's been awhile since this 'Mix Tape Radio' show has met its original 'bi-weekly' intentions…
And because life can be a bit of a dickhead, right before we were about to get re-planted properly back in Canada, some tragic news came out of nowhere and we've suddenly found ourselves in Denmark for the next little while. It was a quick pack before we left, but I managed to move enough stuff onto my laptop in order to piece together a new episode of the show whenever a little spare time would present itself. And in between a couple days of 'gardening as a form of grieving', and during some restless, still on north american time nights, a little spare time presented itself.
So here's EPISODE 061, from my headphones to yours…

And of course, you can always swing by the HI54LOFI Mixcloud page and listen to all 61 episodes of the 'Mix Tape Radio' show. And/Or, swing by iTunes and download all the shows for FREE / subscribe for all future episodes.
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 other quality tunes).
Finally, 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.
