Monday Mixtape Update 09.28.09 :: Humpin’, Thumpin’ and Bumpin’

September 28th, 2009 · 3 Comments

Monday Mixtape Update 09.14.09 :: My Prog-ative

September 14th, 2009 · 6 Comments

OK, it’s been like three weeks and I come back at’cha with a progressive rock mix? I know you aren’t too happy about that. But hey — that’s my prog-ative. And don’t freak. This is pretty much Prog-Lite; no hard-knuckled prog-head would start off a mix with ELO, even if it is off the first […]
