Hello, Welcome, have a mix on me...

So, when my college radio show, "The Musical Menagerie", ended this past month, it surprised me how truly sad I was to see it go. The radio station (and its wonderful staff of students) played a defining role in my college life. Making playlists every week, discovering the new music in the studio, and playing it for my friends and listeners is something I am not quite ready to let go of. So I decided to make a music blog roughly based on my show. In it I’ll continue to make mixes free to download and enjoy as you please and some other musings and treats I’ll post as well. I have made the first mix, and it’s a lot like my show, mixing old and new, and combining different genres. I picked songs that I truly enjoy, because well if I picked something just because it was new and buzz-worthy and I didn’t actually like or react to it, how reliable of a DJ would I actually be? The track listing is below. I hope you like it, and if you have any questions or comments send them my way.
