Once upon a time, back before I had a computer that could burn CDs, let alone DVDs, I made mixtapes. Lots of them. And for a couple of years at Christmastime, I’d make special holiday mixtapes and send them to whoever wanted one. (This was also back when I’d actually handwrite a lot of letters.) I eventually stopped making the mixtapes, or at least sending them to people, because I didn’t have the time.
That’s why I’ve really enjoyed playing with 8tracks.com. It’s like making mixtapes, only so much faster! And it’s also a great way to discover new music, which I love.
So in keeping with the Christmas mixtape tradition, here’s a Christmas mix I’ve made for all of you this holiday season. Enjoy!
