I didn't plan it this way but… yesterday was Valentine's Day and the latest episode of the Mix Tape Radio show is number 69 (yeah, that number). And since I recently put together an 8tracks mix for this time of the year when cuddling / thinking about cuddling is at its highest (and because of the already mentioned VDAY / EPS69 convergence) this latest episode used that '8TRACKS & CHILL' playlist as its starting point. And even though both mixes end up at Jeff Buckley making a case for the importance of mind satisfaction, they arrive there on slightly different paths.
But enough chit chat… go press play and get back to your thinking about cuddling.

And as always, you can swing by the HI54LOFI Mixcloud page and listen to ALL 69 episodes of the 'Mix Tape Radio' show. And/Or you can pop over to iTunes and download all the shows for FREE / subscribe for all future episodes. Oh yeah… you can now find the Mix Tape Radio Show on Stitcher as well.
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 other quality tunes).
Finally, 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.
