Episode 008 of ‘Mix Tape Radio on FRUK’ is a bit of a ‘themed’ mix. That theme being ‘winter is coming’ (which, by the way, it is).
A good portion of this episode is from a mix tape I had made last year (unsurprisingly called ‘winter is coming’). And with it turning dark by 5pm again, I found myself revisiting that mix. Dreading the cold days that were just around the corner. Although, being originally from Canada, I have to admit that some of my built in dread does not get fully realized with a UK winter (even when you add in the fact that the houses here are the opposite of weather-proof, not hitting -30 ever is kind of a nice thing that I haven’t gotten used to yet).
So these 16 tracks (hopefully) convey that feeling of an upcoming winter and some of the darkness and light that takes place (technically, it is 15 tracks, as Go Home, Colateral Soundtrack and Finglebone tracks are more used for mixing purposes).
Here are the air times:
- Sunday 18/11/2012 @ 9:00 pm UK TIME (see what time that is where you are)
- Monday 19/11/2012 @ 1:00 pm UK TIME (see what time that is where you are)
- Wednesday 21/11/2012 @ 2:00 am UK TIME (see what time that is where you are)
- Thursday 22/11/2012 @ 5:00 pm UK TIME (see what time that is where you are)
So… add the above dates to your daily planners and set your clocks to tune into the fine Folk Radio UK (and you can listen more than a few ways, one of which being directly on their Facebook page). And if you missed any of the previous episodes, you can listen to them all over on Mixcloud.
