Electronic Mix Tape #1

One of my favorite things to do in the world used to be making mix tapes. Yes children, in the old days there were these things called tapes and you could record different songs on them. They had two sides and each held about 45 minutes of music. And when you made the tapes, you actually had to listen to each song in real time as it recorded. It was a perfect way to share with others your thoughts and feelings through music.

Nowadays, the art of the mix tape is as dead as buying records in your favorite local music store. Well I sure can't send you all tapes, but through the magic of the Internets I can share an electronic mix tape on these pages. I hope to do this every week and I hope you enjoy them. These are nothing more than songs I love, but to me they mean a lot.
