For decades I have shared the music I discovered with friends by composing mixtapes, burning CDs, playing songs on the radio and now with a podcast.
Every month I will drop ten new (well, recently discovered) indie/alternative/electronic songs, plus artist interviews and bonus throw back episodes.
At the end of the year I will also add a top 50 podcast with all my favorite songs. I hope you enjoy it and help support these artist!
