Episode 50 —yes that's right, we've made it all the way to fifty episodes— kicks off with an 'oldie' from Big Harp and closes out with the opener from The Districts upcoming sophomore LP. In between that you'll find tunes from Kevin Morby, Justin Townes Earle, Fleetwood Mac, Andrew Bryant, Lowpines, Dan Mangan and whole bunch more. So I'll just stop listing things and let you get on with listening (plus… I gots to shoot off to work, so no time for pointless rambling).
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 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 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.
