Adam from songsfortheday asked some people to make him a Winter mix + answer some questions about the making of that mix. I was one of those people. For my mix, I figured I would use the recent 8tracks Winter playlist I made as a starting point for turning the 65th episode of THE MIX TAPE RADIO SHOW into something little extra Winter-y.
I will put a link in here for the rambling answers I gave to Adam's questions once that goes live on his site (HEY! IT'S GONE LIVE! YOU SHOULD maybe GO READ IT!), but until then, feel free to just put your headphones on, grab a blanket to curl under, and disappear into into some winter feels.

And as always, you can swing by the HI54LOFI Mixcloud page and listen to all 65 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.
