A Chain Reaction On Today's Mixtape

by Carmel Holt

Even though the FUV Mixtape is usually a wide-ranging, anything-goes, all-request hour, sometimes inspiration strikes and a theme takes hold. Today, it happened as a result of a photo I posted on Facebook and Twitter of a cassette tape on a chain...and - voila! - we got a bunch of "chain" songs from you. Of course, it's your hour, and we were all too happy to play along.

Our Happy Place: The FUV Mixtape.

by Carmel Holt

The Mixtape makes me happy. You too? Maybe it's because it's so fun to get together for an hour everyday to make an awesome hour of radio. Whatever the reason, keep the great requests coming everyday. It makes us smile.
