I know. It's been more than a little while since the last episode (as I've been on vacation in Denmark). And, to be perfectly honest, it'll probably be a little while until the next next one (as I am moving back to Canada this month). BUT… let's just focus on the here and right now. Because right now I am back in Nottingham, I haven't yet packed my computer up in a big box with my records and books, and right here I have the 58th Episode of the Mix Tape Radio Show ready for you to go press 'play' on. Right now. Right here. Carpe diem and stuff.
If you like what you hear, it'd be real cool of you if you hit those Heart & Repost buttons AND/OR 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 (if this one is not up now, it will be shortly).

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.
