9:43 PM: Jerry's dead, The Grateful Dead suck, get a life.

Since Rivers’ summer mix left a lot to be desired (namely, something from the last 25 years that not by Phish), I decided to fill the void with an unpretentious, fun mix of songs that should make you think of summer. They bring back a lot of good memories, so I hope you download a few of the songs and enjoy them. Closer to summer, I’ll hand out a few copies of the mix, when I get some money to front the blank cd’s. If you’d like a mix cd now, just give me a blank cd, and I’ll be happy to make you one. Along with the names of the songs are sample lyrics from the song that are particularly memorable, fun(ny), or summer-esque. Enjoy!
