I remember the hours, days, and weeks I used to spend with my boombox on the floor, hundreds of tapes (and later, CDs) scattered throughout my room, just listening and listening and planning and listening. Play / Stop / Play / Rewind / Play / Record / Stop. It was transcendent. And at the end of it all, this wonderful compilation of joy, anger, sadness, love, everything my body was screaming came out in this lovely rectangular form.

In years past, I’ve made a lot of mixes and I’ve had a lot of mixes made for me. There is truly no greater labor of love. I only wish I could have saved them all and followed in the footsteps of Charles Pates:
