I came up in the age of the mix tape. My friends and I would compile favorite songs onto cassettes and pass them around. We eventually moved to CD’s but the idea was the same. Now, of course, everything is just streaming on your phone or whatever but I still think there’s a little magic in making a mix. I have a few that you can download at http://mixtapes.koalaresentmenthour.com
I try to keep them under 80 minutes so you can burn them to a CD if you still use that arcane, obsolete technology like I do.
