Candy Corn Fall Mix 2013

image (1)


So much good music has/is coming out this fall… I knew I wanted to put Applause (Lady Gaga) and Roar (Katy Perry) on a mix (and Patent Pendings new song too)… all of these songs don’t have the typical sound I go for on my fall mixes. So I decided since I had more than enough music I would make two mixes for fall. The first one is the Candy Corn mix. It’s a little bit pop and a lot of awesome. Enjoy!

Summer Mix 2013

You guys… Its hot…. Like really hot…. Like I caught myself wishing for winter today… I know INSANITY!  My point is we are smack in the middle of summer and that means Summer Mix time! I actually had this done like a month ago, but as you can tell I haven’t been blogging here for a couple of months. I have been busy co-directing the 10-10 Festival at Chagrin Valley Little Theatre. The show closed last Saturday and now I have more time… too bad it’s so hot I don’t want to do anything but sit in front of a fan.  I digress…I made this mix for the first part of the summer. I usually do two mixes so I will be putting together a new one soon…. it will be hard to beat this one! If someone can recommend  a way I can put the actual playlist on here so you folks can listen to it I would be forever grateful. Please share your thoughts!

Summer 2012 mix

SUMMER!!! Ok I know technically it’s not summer. First day of summer is June 20th. BUT Cleveland has three months out of the year when it’s hot and the sun is shining and you can go the beach…So it is summer… at least here. We did our first beach day a week or so ago. We didn’t go in, but it was nice to sit and talk and have the sand between my toes. I can’t wait to be able to go in the water. Just as weekly trips to Mentor Headlands is a summer tradition, so is creating a summer  mix. Here is my 2012 playlist.
