Press play on one of the above players to fire up that entire SIDE, or you can push the UP NEXT buttons to choose which mix tape you want to start your listen at. New mixes will be added on the regular (and there is already hours & hours of music contained on each "side").
** MIX TAPE RADIO runs on Mixcloud, which is free for anyone to use. I don't think you even need an account to listen—but if you find you like using it—you can always signup for a free listener account and get Mixcloud's free app for your phone. CLICK HERE for more info about MIX TAPE RADIO **
If you think about it, Spotify playlists are a lot like Mix CDs. Except better. Take the above playlist.
You can save this 420 track playlist for offline listening and then throw it on shuffle anywhere you go, whether there be wifi or not. And if you hit the 'Follow' button, not only will you save this playlist for easy access the next time you need a trusty 24 hours worth of non-repeating music, but anytime new songs are added to the mix, everything auto-magically updates on your end. Modern mix cd on steroids.
The same perks apply to any other human-made playlist you might find on Spotify—a great selection of which you'll be able to find on HIGH FIVE FOR example…
** In order to listen to a Spotify playlist, you need a Spotify account. You can get a free account, but they come with frequent commercials & you can't save any playlists for offline listening. CLICK HERE for more info on #HI54MIXCDS **

I call it FM/TV because f mtv right?
I had completely gone off using Soundcloud awhile back - but then I started using SubmitHub and all of the sudden I was listening to a whole bunch of Soundcloud songs again.

…but until then

** BUT PLEASE NOTE: If you want to send me music to check out, I deal with all Submissions over on Submithub. So if you’re wanting me to listen to some tunes, Submithub is where I deal with all the “hey… can you listen to this & also blog about it”that I get sent on the regular…
