Thursday Mixes

More

Chairman Mao -- who also runs a very fine blog here -- with an expert blend of Latin, boogie, disco, etc. "You need this." (Click on Radio Archive in the top right corner.)

Brilliant, summery mix from the Meanest Man Contest. Highlights: portly Brazilian soul man Tim Maia, Neil Innes' versioning of "Cum on Feel the Noize," Minnie Riperton hitting the high notes, and DOOM massacring all comers.
