8-9am “I Made You This Mixtape,” with Nate Greenleaf revives the personal compilation tapes produced by individuals in the 1980’s. Often built upon a theme, the mixtape consisted of songs, poetry, comedy bits, clips from tv shows and movies, whatever...as long as it aided the creator to express what they were thinking and feeling. Usually the mixtape was created with a specific listener in mind. Our program seeks to resuscitate the lost art of fitting as much sentiment as possible into 49 minutes.
