This is another Magic Whistle Radio Hour for you. I have no end to these. There will be no repetition.
These are things I've collected over the years or acquired on mixtapes and comps or gathered from the internet. I make no claims to "discovering" or "owning" anything and neither do you. It's whatever I feel like playing that week. Things that may or may not be familiar. Who knows. If you haven't seen past weeks here they're here too. I do one every week. Just click on “audio” in the labels below which will take you to the one before and so on and so on. Here's this week's show...
You can also save a zip (which you can open as an mp3) by right-clicking this and listen to it while you're jogging or drawing or something.
