January 2009

For this month's theme I decided not to go for light or dark songs, mainly because I didn't want to sit and listen to loads of dark flavoured music as it's too damn depressing at this time of year. So I went for the literal interpretation again and am doing two mixes, one with songs that have Black in the title and one with songs that (you guessed it) have White in their title...

February 2009

Hello music lovers...

My parents were born in the late 1920's and their musical taste was somewhat classical and conservative so didn't really inherit much from them. So as my choice for this month's theme was a party mix i'd thought i'd combine the two and imagine what music I would have selected for a party had I been around in my parent's time. So without further ado here is my effort for mjm716 ...

December 2009

Happy New Year everyone!!!
Apologies for my tardiness, it's been a busy month unsurprisingly, but I did manage to squeeze this one out eventually. Ooh, that sounds a bit like musical constipation. So without further a poo, I mean ado, here is Nerdy's mixtape...




For most of the year i've been converting old tapes and vinyl to mp3 which led me to like-minded geeks people, and on to discover the world of musical blogs.
This means I have neglected to hear the contemporary stuff, which everyone seems to have documented so well on here, that compiling a best of 2009 was pointless. As for the entire decade, well, you could drive yourself crazy doing that one.
So, instead, i've decided to throw together a few of the lost treasures and newly discovered tracks plunged, pillaged and converted throughout 2009.

    The Giles, Giles and Fripp song is not Call Tomorrow in your .rar file. I think it's the one about Rodney Toadey.
