I made mix CDs all through high school (they took SO LONG to burn back then). I made mix CDs for boyfriends. I still have them all. So when I gave a friend at work a CD of my favorite Ted Leo & Rx songs, I was giddy when he gave me his own homemade mix CD.
It’s currently importing to my Macbook. I’m excited because I can safely say I’ve never heard of any of these songs and artists before.
I’ve always been a fan of music being an awesome way to bond with people – whether it’s through looking through their iTunes playlist, or giving them a mix CD, or going to a concert together.
