Playlist Volume 1


[8tracks url=”″ width=”640″ height=”640″ ]

One of my go-to bloggers, Becca of Ladyface Blog, recently hosted a real, old-school, snail mail, mix CD exchange. I was pumped to participate—making mixes has been a passion of mine since I learned how to record songs off the radio with my cassette player. The youth of today will never understand the tragedy of a radio dj cutting off the end of a song with mindless jabber.

Fortunately or not, depending on your audio preferences, making a music playlist has gotten way easier with digital music. This is the mix I made for the swap, and I thought I’d share it with you all.

Are any of you into making mixes? Do you remember the thrill of receiving a mix CD from your high school crush? Do you live inĀ High Fidelity?

  1. Oooh, yay! I’m glad you had fun making your mix! I don’t always end up getting them onto a CD, but I really really love putting together playlists. I had the most adorable punk rock boyfriend in high school and his mix cds always melted my heart. No wonder I love them so much!
