Mixed tapes are a dying art in my opinion. No matter the trends or the popularity of something, there are some things you should hold onto. For me that’s playlists. You better believe that I used to sit in my bedroom over and over and wait for that certain song to come on the radio so I could hit record. My friends and I would call in requests and celebrate when our picks were played. That evolved into burning cd’s, or compacts discs, those round things that annoyingly get scratched all the time, and soon my collection grew. I saved money and secretly bought music that my parents forbid (I mean who didn’t do that) and hid them in my room to listen to when they weren’t around. I rode out the wave of mp3s, Napster, and any other free download program that popped up. You wouldn’t believe how many places you can get massive playlists from. BIRP still might be my favorite though, and an awesome place to check out all sorts of new stuff. And FYI, this site doesn’t require you to download anything or have any special program for it. I crashed a few computers and resulted to making giant lists of songs (literally notebooks) for my friend to make cd’s for me. Shout out to Adam to indulging in all my requests. 😉
Fast forward to the world of satellite radio and bluetooth, Pandora, Spotify, Itunes, Shazaam (I really heart Shazaam) and the all the hipsters with their record collections. I’ll admit though, I’m a fan of vinyl myself as well. There are countless forms of music trends so much so that I can’t even keep up, nor do I really care to. Making a sweeping turn back to where I was going with this…. Anyone that is friends with me has gotten a cd from me at some point. I’ll continue to do that whether or not it’s cool or people like it. Side story, I made a couple cd’s that went in a wedding present and the groom told my husband he threw them out the window. HA! Who doesn’t love a road trip kit?! Some people just don’t know how good they have it. Your welcome to whoever found it on the road and probably played it, because I’m sure you thought it was awesome.
Here’s my Saturday session that’s on today. Happy weekend friends!
