Today Carmel Holt introduces a new daily hour of requests at noon called the WFUV Mixtape.
Even in the age of digital downloads and online streaming, there is still something special about the mixtape. A hand-picked selection of tunes serves countless purposes: it makes the perfect soundtrack for a roadtrip; a lesson in "good music" for a younger sibling; even a gift to impress a crush. What song would you absolutely include on a mixtape today? Share your favorite mixtape memories and song suggestions in the comments below and we'll spin a set for you this morning.
Here's what we played:
"La Vie En Rose" - Edith Piaf
"Feeling Good" - Nina Simone
"You Got What You Give" - New Radicals
"Commando" - The Ramones
