Mixtape podcast

I just discovered the podcast The Mixtape. Wow, what a fantastic job Tim Buckwalter has done selecting and sequencing songs. Not sure if every show is 100% FMA, but the first episode is. I enthusiastically unreservedly recommend checking it out:

Hey, Just an FYI, I finally got around to posted the rest of the tracks from the first No Nature Record...I know its 3 years later, but hey... There is actually a whole other record that is unreleased and yet another 3rd record that is unfinished, but I never did figure out how musicians get those things relseased. Enjoy! best, N

Hey, lady! Found you elsewhere on the web recently. It was such a treat to see your words! Think of you often, as I seem to follow the tracks the little bird who has found great music! Here's hoping the season is treating you well, jessibird! Love from a fan!
on 11/22/2011 at 10:46AM
Hi Jessibird ! Proud to be in your favorites. Thank you. Greats from the parisian forest !
on 08/02/2011 at 09:52PM
I just started here - your favourites seemed to be a good start point. :D
on 05/05/2011 at 08:49PM
Oops, just remembered I can't play that playlist for commercial purposes. We're a for-profit company, but the event is free and open to the public. Does that count?
on 05/05/2011 at 07:47PM
A co-worker asked me to put together a playlist for a public event -- to play in the lobby where people come in. Free Music Archive artists fill the bill!
on 04/18/2011 at 10:18PM
Gal, I love it when I find something new in the FMA and you have already put your stamp of approval on it! It happens regularly. Gives me a smile every single time. Raising a cup to you, Jessibird, my sister in music adventures!
on 04/03/2011 at 10:51PM
Thanks Joe, but I'm not a musician myself, just an appreciator. I also admit to a bias toward melody and rhythm, though I don't mind a little noise mixed in for spice ;)
on 04/03/2011 at 10:46PM
No offense to the other artists here, but thank you for making music with a tempo and a tune!
on 02/17/2011 at 05:39AM
I really should, DUSSUD. I really should. No promises though!
on 02/15/2011 at 12:15PM
nice mix! an other for 2011? +++
on 05/07/2010 at 11:11AM
Hi, nice to meet you too and thanks for the kind woprds. I'll digg your mixtape, has a tasty tracklisting ;)
on 04/11/2010 at 12:31PM
A friend is looking for instrumentals to play for art students to draw to - stuff to stimulate the creative process. I finally thought to send her here, doh! Where else would one find such a varied, extensive collection of creativity-stimulating sounds!
on 03/24/2010 at 11:04AM
Hey Jessibird! It's a pleasure to meet your acquaintance. Hope the day is treating you well!
on 03/24/2010 at 11:00AM
I've been busy discovering old-timey jazz and blues over at Sometimes I feel spread too thin in my listening. But what was I put on this earth for if not to attempt to hear all the good music on the planet!

"The hand-drum was just as she had described. It was made out of human skulls – children’s skulls to be precise. Over the highly polished crania was stretched a thin membrane of human skin. The waist of the drum was circled with a silver ring embossed with turquoise stones and red coral. “One skull is female, the other is male”, she explained. “It symbolises the union of wisdom and compassion. It’s very powerful. If you get one made out of babies’ skulls that’s even better – something to do with the energy flowing through the opening in the fontanelles.” " ----------------------------And also thigh-bone trumpets:

I'm wishing I could just hang out here instead of doing my paid work today. Maybe some Victrola will take the edge off my website coding struggles.

on 11/06/2009 at 05:46PM
Hey thanks, Jason! For some reason I hadn't figured that out, though it's right in front of my face. You are a good FMA friend.
on 11/06/2009 at 04:30PM
Hey Jessibird, you can play your favorites page in shuffled order if you refresh this page -- it reshuffles each time
on 11/05/2009 at 02:42AM
