A bit of sad news for you all… this is the last episode of ‘Mix Tape Radio On Folk Radio UK‘ :(
But before you go drown your sorrows in a bottle of something strong, it’s not as sad as it sounds. I’ll keep on making these ‘Mix Tape Radio’ mix tapes in basically the same fashion (i.e. every couple of weeks, and you’ll still be able to listen on Mixcloud & download on iTunes), the only real change is that the show will no longer be hosted by Folk Radio UK on their Mixcloud page.
Why? Well, as some of you may remember, this show first started as a 1 hour segment on Folk Radio UK’s 24hr internet stream. But after some changes to how Folk Radio UK ran their 24hr internet stream a few months ago, there was no more 1 hour segments to fill. So, in the midst of those changes, it was decided to keep doing these shows and just post directly to FRUK’s Mixcloud page while they transitioned into a new set up. Well, the transition period is over, and Alex and I agreed that maybe it doesn’t make sense to keep doing a HI54LOFI show on a FRUK account. But rather than just cutting the chord unannounced, we figured we’d do one last show.
I thought about making a ‘goodbye songs’ themed show, but that seemed a bit dramatic. So I’ve basically put together this last episode the same way I’ve put together all the other ones… a bunch of good songs that (hopefully) flow nicely into the next. Of course, I couldn’t help bookending the episode with 2 ‘goodbye songs’, but hey, it is the last episode after all.
So like the opening track says so perfectly, “Maybe, baby, we’ll meet again someday. Or we won’t”. But I hope we will. And you can make sure that happens by following the HI54LOFI Mixcloud page & subscribing to this show on iTunes, as well liking HI54LOFI on Facebook & following on Twitter. The ‘Mix Tape Radio’ show will go on (just not on FRUK anymore).
