It seems that most of these times happened before everyone seemed to have a video camera in their cell phone. The following is a list of songs that will make any (or all) white people dance instantaneously. Enjoy!

Sneak Previews

Mix Tapers,

As music fans you guys should check out the All Song Considered Sneak Preview page HERE.

It all streams... and it is out a couple of days early... and since we, here at Monday Night Mixtapes are all about streaming audio we thought we would share the love.

Bob Boilen can be a kind of lame, but I bet you can push through!


Mix #28 - The President's Mix

Hello Mix Tapers!

I have been trying to think about what the first blog would be like after the hiatus. It feels like it should be bigger/better than usual (which put the pressure on me) because I haven't been writing, but then I realized that it is not that I haven't been writing, it has been that I haven't been sharing. Which means that I really have nothing to prove. Well at least not sharing with more than a couple of people at a time - generally after a lot of drink.
The end of the year almost always begs for mix tapes as you try to decide what you have found throughout the year and more importantly what has stuck as some outstanding new music. I don't have a year end review today... as more pressing issues are at play. Namely - the swearing in of a new President.

The first playlist consists of songs about presidents or tied/inspired by presidents. The second is a mix of songs by artists Obama as said are on his iPod.

Please listen, enjoy, and watch the president get sworn in!

Raise your glasses high.

3) James K. Polk - They Might Be Giants

Happy New Years

So it has been a rough end of the year over here at the Mix Tapes Home Office. It seems I have found myself a tad laid off and have been traveling around 1930's style looking for work. There have been some times and I hope to bring you the music that tells the tales.

I just thought I would drop a little note saying that music is coming... from Tennessee and beyond.

Thanks to all who have been sending in - Especially, Jesse for the kick in the ass.

Back soon in '09
