Feeling a little down? Need a pick me up? Just hit that play button and it won't take long for a smile to spread across your face.
What is this mix about? I can say it best with a variation on a quote originally attributed to Hunter S. Thompson:
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand, strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used-up, totally worn out and screaming, "WOO HOO - WHAT A RIDE!"
This goes out to Becky. She's the most positive life-force I know. And my most enthusiastic supporter - pushing me to keep doing what I love to do - exploring the best music of the last 50 years or so.
The photo was taken in 1938 at Southend Fair, England by Kurt Hutton.
