Not only am I relatively new to MTC, but this is my very first potpourri mix. Just hope by limiting myself to retro music, I haven't made it any less of a potpourri. Think I was on the right track though. Time will tell...

Yeah, there were set guidlines, and you will get it next time, but this isn't the army, it's a place for music nerds to share their mutual love/obsession and this mix is intrigueing, like all your mixes. There is always someone there I don't know, songs I haven't heard of. I expect that more from contemporary mixes. I do listen to new stuff but my knowledge base is mired mostly in the past. Then you come along with names and songs that are new to me and I have new old music to research. It is so cool having you at MTC and I really like this mix!
