There was a time when if you wanted to share music you were limited to 90 minutes, 45min a side, on a cassette. While that seems ancient, not long ago 80 minutes was the limit on a burnable audio CD. I started making mixtapes on CDs (I know, that sounds weird) – with the original release of iTunes. Playlists evolved for me as I created show set lists and walk-in and walk-out music for Cats Paying Dues productions. For the past few years, every Christmas I’ve shared a burnable playlist with a handful of friends. These are tracks that have affected me throughout the year, and some newer discoveries. This year we’re going public. Enjoy!
