I'll be straight with you, I've always wanted to have my own radio station. And before the internet existed (or at least, before I knew it existed), this want manifested itself in a bit of an obsession with making mix tapes. Well, I've now been aware of the internet for many years… and below you'll find some of my attempts of merging that mix tape obsession with something that kind of resembles a radio station.
24 Hour Stream Of ‘Mix Tape Radio’ Now Available…
To tune in to this station of HI54LOFI approved tuneage, all you need is an internet connection. You can either press play on the player embedded above, or you can listen to the stream in iTunes / Windows Media Player / Winamp / etc. You can also get the Radionomy app for your iphone or android and then listen to Mix Tape Radio on there (just search for "HI54LOFI"). You can also listen to this station on TUNEIN. And you can also listen HERE. Also, you can see always see what's now playing over on the MXTP RADIO Twitter account.
PLEASE NOTE: This station is run using RADIONOMY. Which means a few things. Firstly, in some countries, RADIONOMY inserts commercials (and in some countries, no commercials are currently played). I have no control over what commercials get played (but it is the playing of those commercials that pays for the service). Secondly, if not enough people listen to this station on a daily basis, RADIONOMY will shut down the station (after 9 months, 130 listener hours per day are needed). So if you like listening, listen often. And tell some others to do the same. Have any suggestions or comments or unadulterated praise you would like to send me? You can do so over on the Contact page.
Other Mix Tape Radio "Channels"
Every 2 weeks I make a 1 hour mix tape of some of my favourite tunes, which you can stream on Mixcloud & download on iTunes.
There's a lot of great music on Bandcamp, so I like to use Minilogs to keep track of the stuff I like. Which makes for a nice radio.
Every now and again I put a little mix tape together over on the wonderful radio alternative that is 8tracks.
I've been making playlists on Spotify (and continuing to add to them). If Spotify's in your country, press play.
