Mix Tape Radio: Episode 048

Episode 48 kicks off with the loveliest song ever written about inappropriate teacher / student relations and closes out with a tune from The Golden Dregs latest. In between those two, you'll find some new Thom Yorke and some old-but-new-to-me Elliott Smith, a bunch of gems from 2014 (I've spent the start of my 2015 listening to 2014), a late night Patrick Porter rambling, and a tasty taste from ANOTHER excellent William Ryan Fritch album.

You might also notice that this episode is a little shorter than the others. Well, that's because I'm going to be switching to a 40-45 minute length instead of the previous 1 hour mark. I'm thinking that'll make for better listening experience (i.e. an hour can be a lot to expect from people, what with all the shiny things out there competing for their time) + make things a little better on my end when it comes to putting together an episode every 2 weeks and writing about the music featured (the mix tape is only 15 minutes shorter, but there's a lot of time that would have went into those extra 15 minutes of mix tape).

Anyway… Happy New Year and Happy Listening and All That Stuff!

If you like what you hear, it'd be real cool of you if you hit those Heart & Share buttons, as well as 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 (this one will be up later in the week). Cheers!


And of course, you can always swing by the HI54LOFI Mixcloud page and listen to all 48 episodes of the 'Mix Tape Radio' show. And/Or, swing by iTunes and download the last 47 shows for FREE / subscribe to all future episodes (Episode 48 will be going up on iTunes in about a week… so it wouldn't be a bad idea to click the subscribe button while you're there, no?).

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 others in the pretty big and always getting bigger rotation of quality tuneage).

Finally, please 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. 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.
