It has been a hectic seven days. Hurricane Irma threatened much of my home state and though my area was not in its path, we did host many evacuees and that meant extended work hours for me. Exhausting, but it was the most rewarding week I've had at my job - it is always a humbling honor to help my fellow Floridians in times of crisis, even if in minor ways like relieving stress, being a sounding board for their anxieties and more crucual things like feeding and sheltering them. We also hosted FEMA drivers and power linemen going in and out of the storm's path, these men are heroes in my estimation, for sure. So, I've not been able to do any preparatory work on the FM Rock or Jukebox series mixes... they will resume shortly, however, here's another of the personal little mixes I make for myself and my commute to and from work - songs that have been going through my head lately, something to personally document this specific moment in time for me but really just a bunch of songs I love. Much appreciation to the great shows on mixcloud in my listening queue made by the best curators on the planet: seventyfive, Mick Capewell, Diagonals, Sonny Lee, The Secret Rock Show, Johnny Switchblade, Captain Maniac... look these cats up on mixcloud, you won't regret it, line their shows up in your player and you'll have the best radio station in the universe!
