In 2004, and throughout 2005, I was creating weekly 10-15 minute mixes for the Vic McGlynn show on BBC 6 Music. These were broadcast on a Friday afternoon and the slot became known as 'The 3.33 from 5G' (5G was the studio at Broadcasting House) It was lots of fun to do, and I pretty much had free reign over what I played, with a bit of a nod towards the playlist, often in the form of alternative mixes or reworkings of tracks on the playlist at the time. The Head Of Music said my mix feature was 'essential diary listening' - which was nice.
In 2005 I started glueing these little sections together with extra tracks into longer CD length mixes as my semi regular 'Mix Of The Month' series, this is the fifth from August 2005. Check out that intro - man, I listened to alot of records to find all those snippets. And you might have noticed how pleased I was with myself, cos I used lots of them again in other mixtapes :)
