• 2009 Favorites Mixtape

    Hey everybody,

    It's that time of year again. At the end of each year I tend to put together a mix of my favorite songs from the past twelve months or so to send out to friends and family. So here it is, the fourth annual end of the year mix. As always, I hope you enjoy it and discover something new, and let me know what you think, or if there's songs I missed. I wish you all the very best, and hope 2010 is a happy and a healthy year for everyone!

    Hey folks,

    Each holiday season since 2005 I've made a mix for family and friends with my favorite songs from the past year. I haven't been too good at actually mailing it out on time (or at all) though, so this year I've decided to post the songs online. Like years before, it's made up of two whole discs worth of my favorite songs that came out in 2008 (and one or two from 2009... and 2007... and 1968). You can download it and copy it to CDs, put it on your iPod, play it in iTunes... the possibilities are pretty much endless. Anyway, let me know what you think of it... I hope you discover something new, and I hope you enjoy it!
