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 above player (or pop it open as a new window), or you can listen to the stream in iTunes / Windows Media Player / Winamp / etc (just download and open the M3U stream in whatever music player you prefer to use). You can also get the Radionomy app for your iphone or android and listen to Mix Tape Radio on there (just search for 'HI54LOFI'). Or you can listen here or here.
I also wrote a blog post that goes a bit more into detail about this new station (i.e. about Radionomy and the pros and cons and why I decided to try it out)… so if that sounds like something you'd be interested in reading, you can do so here.
Other Mix Tape Radio "Channels"
I host a show on Folk Radio UK (almost) every 2 weeks which is basically a 1 hour mix tape of some of my favourite tunes.
There's a lot of great music on Bandcamp, so I like to use Songdrop 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.
If you'd like your music considered for any of the above 'Mix Tape Radio' channels, shoot me an email at:
