I have yet to get an email telling me you are my assigned person and I've been checking here regularly all month and not seeing an assignment at all, but this evening suddenly there you are as my December assignment with less than a week to go. seems too late for a Christmas theme but I'll come up with something.

Walter

Hi Bruce, your June disc left Sydney today (13th June).

Kay

Hi there, think you are the Bruce I was mixing for this month. Just a heads up, it'll arrive late, as I'm just sending it today. Sorry about that, hope it won't take long to reach you.

Steve

Bruce - Cheers for the Side & Solo Projects mix. A nice simple idea well selected. Though i could just tell your age bracket by the inclusion of solo Bob Mould, Paul Westerberg and Tanya Donnelly! Ha..Sid

Cornelius

Brooooooooooooooose! Broooooooooooooose! I haven't been in contact with you since our side-trade years ago. Well first off, I'm sorry I'm late with your April mixins. That's the story of my I>M>P life. To make up I've sent a bonus chill disc and some little prizes! (P.S. I was just in your neck of the woods, Asheville, NC, last month on a little trip and found it to be very beautiful and lots of great restaurants. Take care. I hope you enjoy the music.

RayGun

Glad you got & enjoyed the mixes! Keep on rockin'!

RayGun

Grande sized apologies from me. Yer Feb mix is finally on its way (I've had a chronic case of the cd-not-burnin-so-well- blues.) RayGun

Sorry 'bout that, don't know what got into me...here's me EEmail addy: intruderalert@hotmail.com Send me your postal info and I'll get that Clutch mix into the mail toot sweet! Cheers.

Ron

hey bruce - glad you liked the mix! it is october's CD. tried to go for tracks that represented the progressive/underground side of hip-hop. songs that showed some creativity, originality and (on some tracks) a social conscience. in other words, as far away from Mims as I could get...

Ron

hi bruce - your october mix is coming out today or tomorrow. my pc died, so i couldn't create a new mix for you. but i found some extra copies of previous mixes. the one coming to you is a progressive hip-hop. hope you enjoy! ron c.

Ruby

Thanks for re-sending + apologies for the bother.

Nicole

the speed changes were not intentional! that's what happens when you buy your turntable 2nd hand. but actually i told a tiny white lie. some of those song were from LP's i borrowed from the education library i work in.

Laura

Mastodon and Josh Rouse should be on a double bill. It's perfect.

Ian

Your mixes are ace. Randomness is what it's all about. Sometimes I'll use a theme or at least a progression, but often it's just about that random awesomeness. Then I give 'em to friends who say dumb things like "it jumps around a bit too much". I just sigh and wait for them to evolve.

David

I'm always glad to hear of someone else liking 12 Golden Country Greats. "Mr. Richard Smoker" is great. I read somewhere that the old Nashville session musicians who worked with Gene and Dean had a good chuckle when they read the lyrics to the songs they were working on.
