Hi James, your mixtape is on it's way, sorry for the delay!


Hi James, huge apologies for not getting a Feb mix to you yet. I have had computer related disasters and lost a bunch of music (forlorn sigh). I shall cobble something together and get it over to you quick sharpish. Nell


David, Your January Mix doesn't have far to travel (it's from Manchester)'s being posted today...


super late with your november mix. i had a busy month at work and totally forgot to do it. it's in the mail now.


Hi James, your August disc left Sydney today (Aug 8th).


Hi James, I just put your April '12 mix in the mail today (5/4) and it should make its way to you in the next 5-7 days. So sorry for the delay, but I hope you enjoy the tracks. --Ashley


Mix sent out, apologies again for the lateness, hope you enjoy it!


Apologies in advance, your July mix will probably be late as my laptop decided to die this week...I'll do my best to get your mix out though.


Hey James, I expect to have your June 2011 mix in the mail to you before the end of the week. Just making sure I like it and getting the artwork together. It'll take some time to get there since I'm across the pond and all.


Hey James, You're my assignment. The disc is ready to go, but it's tax season in the US right now, and the post offices are mobbed with lazy people frantically trying to send out their documents. I'm going to wait 2 more days and then send it. I hope it makes it to you by the end of the month! Bret


James, I dropped a package for you in the post about a week ago. I hope it arrives soon.


Hey James, Sorry to hear about the address snafu, that sucks. Tell you what, if you drop me a line at and you don't mind me getting your mix via the internet, I'll send you over your mix and the next one (the other half of the Ns). If you require an actual piece of plastic, that's fine, but let me know at my email anyway, or I'll probably forget. Cheers, Ian


Hi James Thank you for the sonic youth mix!Trish


Hey, I'm sending out your January mix tomorrow or Friday, and I just noticed your Tribute to Stylus mix. As one of the writers there, thanks very much for the kind thoughts - it's always awesome to see that someone knew we existed, to be honest!


Hey man, did you ever get your January Mix?


Hey James, I got a message today saying that you'd received my October mix, but I'm afraid that there's been a mix-up. I just sent it yesterday, though, so it should arrive in a week or so. Sorry for the delay.


It's late but it's coming. You can get a sneak preview if you look at my profile.


so sorry your aug. mix is so late! It's on its way I promise!


James, The May mix was sent 5/24 from the US of frickin' A. So I don't think it will be there before the end of the month but it shouldn't be too late, either. - James


You mix for March is done. I will be sending it off here in the next day or 2. Sorry about it being late....been a very busy month. Hope you enjoy it.

hi james cheers for september mixtape, enjoyed the mix of tunes.


hey james. glad you like the mix. as for dirty on purpose, i've had so many opportunities to see them and haven't yet. it's driving me insane! but they have a solid album. hopefully you can check 'em out.


Loveless is golden. In my top 10 for sure. Maybe even top 5 with the Jesus & Mary Chain's PSYCHOCNADY.


Lovely February mix. Thanks!


Cheers Jim, just got your mix. Thanks. Steve Dahlgren
