My friend Mike has really good taste in music. I learned this from the very first mix CD I remember him and Kari making me – it was a 3 disc set. They made it for me for my drive from California to North Carolina when I moved here almost 7 years ago. Since then I have receive many awesome mix CDs from Mike, who introduced me to many great bands I probably wouldnt of heard of otherwise. I was going to try and make my own mix for chemo, but I knew Mike would do way better. So I asked for a sad/mad mix. He made it a double disc set, with each of those themes, depending how Im feeling that day and they are awesome. Im gearing up my iPhone with them for when chemo starts next week. I thought Id share his awesome mix CD skills with you all. Thank you, Mike!

Sounds like some great music! I’m guessing I’ve been a recipient of some of the music they have passed onto you, which is awesome.
