  1. Such good songs! What excellent taste. I love The Mountain Goats track so much. Pretty bitter though…despite being in a long term relationship and being a super romantic type I might make a really bitter, snarky valentine’s day mix…

    • Thank you – though the rest of the guys in the band and our requesters should take the credit for the good taste (except guitarist Nick’s choice of Haddaway – inexplicable, but rules are rules and it had to go in…)

      If you make a snarky mix, do share it 🙂

  2. There’s a time and a place for Haddaway.

    Enjoying this month’s podcast, thanks Kat.

  3. I’d have gone with The Day I See You Again over St Swithin’s Day personally.
