The Mix Tape Mafia decides the best songs to fit a certain theme, and delivers an incredible playlist each episode. Along the way, hosts Jason Papagan and Anthony Pisch nominate songs back and forth, crack wise and determine which songs make the cut, and which end up on the cutting room floor. Every episode is a musical and comical feast for the ears that results in a supreme "Mix Tape" playlist for the listeners to add to their Spotify, Apple Music, etc. Why are we the Mix Tape Mafia?... because we're paisans and what we say goes.

Ep. 51: Eddie Van Halen Tribute
In true Mix Tape Mafia fashion, we honor the greatest rock guitarist ever by picking out the best song from each of the 14 Van Halen albums. Pappy leads the way on this journey to honor his favorite band as he and Anthony are joined by the interim producer Hunter Piermont n the Villa Papagna outdoor studio. Come along on this journey through the David Lee Roth era, the Sammy Hagar era, and yes, sadly, even the Gary Cherone album. Eddie was the greatest.
Ep. 49: Doppelgängers
We found a missing pre-COVID episode from earlier this year that never made it to air... and it's a blast - songs that sound eerily similar to other songs... that's right, it's the doppelgängers episode! Come back into the family of the MIx Tape Mafia as Jason and Anthony bring you along on a journey of delight for your ears, trying to match like for like and assembling an epic playlist along the way!
Ep. 48: The Clappers
It's an all new episode with the best songs that feature clapping! Jason & Anthony (aka Cheesesteak & Chowder) are the Mix Tape Mafia, so remember, what they say goes. ;) It's a really good "mix tape" and Spotify playlist that comes out of this one, so we hope you enjoy the music, the banter, the debates, and the shenanigans... aren't you glad we didn't say "Coronavirus songs"??
Ep. 47: Never Have I Ever
The Mix Tape Mafia is back with a whole new awesome playlist of songs featuring the word "Never" in the title! Sounds a little odd, but once we dive into it, you'll totally get why this is one of the sneakiest cool mix tapes we've ever done. Be sure to find and follow the playlist on Spotify when you're done listening to the episode.
Ep. 46: Back-Up Cameos
On this episode of the Mix Tape Mafia, we put together a unique playlist of songs that feature cameo back-up vocal appearances from famous singers. Did you know Michael Jackson sang on Rockwell's "Somebody's Watching Me"? or that Bryan Adams contributed on Glass Tiger's "Don't Forget Me When I'm Gone"? These and a whole lot more surprises on this great episode!...
Ep. 45: Laundry List Songs
Lots of songs tell a story... love, heartbreak, angst, success... And then there are the songs that, well, they pretty much just list off a bunch of semi-random shit. Hence, we give you... The Laundry List songs!!
