WFMU : Freedom is Freeform!

What is your favorite mp3 on the FMA? I realize that's not an easy question -- I like pretty much every track I've heard here among the 33,000. But this mix includes a freeform dozen of my 450+ "Favorites": MWE's 'Turkish Metal / Balkan Brass', Raleigh Moncrief, Thick Business, Zoë Keating, FMA hero Lucky Dragons, Karl Blau the super Northwesterner and member of Earth, Dustin Wong formerly of Ponytail, Rafter, Bay Of Pigs, and The Paparazzi...
The premium's titled ULTIMATE ROAD TRIP, and it comes in three MP3 volumes. The first volume is the Ultimate Road Trip, and it gets mailed to you as a CD with my own handmade artwork. The second is for 'Alternate Routes,' and the third is for 'Off-Road Trips'.
The rest of the tracks on this mix will be included in WFMU's USB drive full of mp3's from the Free Music Archive, one of many cool station-wide swag items. For some reason it says there'll be 100 mp3's on the jump drive. Well, we did the math and it turns out we can fit closer to 150 mp3s on a 2GB drive, so if you have any suggestions, we're all ears! Leave a comment here or in the forum to let us know about your favorite FMA find!
You can read more about the fundraising drive happening over at WFMU, the station that birthed the FMA, over at Marathon HQ. It runs thru March 13th. When pledging by phone or online or (especially during my show Thurs 9am-12n ET), tell 'em the FMA sent ya!
