I hope you're feeling rejuvenated after the weekend? I'm pretty beat as mine was spent fulfilling several unfortunately unavoidable mundane chores, as well as the usual burning of both ends of the proverbial candle! Thankfully though help is on hand for today's post as I'm joined by the fantastic Tony C!
Those that drop by on the reg. will already be familiar with Tony, the man behind the sadly now defunct Melting Pot radio show, as he has already graced us with a brace of fantastic guest mixes which you can catch HERE and HERE.
A short while ago I put the feelers out for the Guest mix series that we ran to celebrate our two year anniversary and thankfully Tony obliged and returned with the selections contained herein!
As always his musical choices never disappoint and I'm sure you'll find this will hit the spot and get your week off to a good start!
Enjoy Tony C's cracking mix, stay safe and I'll be back here shortly with a new slice of the 'Good Stuff' for you. Ladies and gentlemen give it up for Tony C.....
"Hello and many thanks to Mr Double Down for inviting me to air a few of my tunes to celebrate two years of top notch Blogging. 'The Hook and Sling' never fails to deliver and has been a favourite of mine for information during the last two years.
'Give a Damn' is a collection of 45's, apart from Mancini's cool version of 'Green Onions', put together whilst enjoying a good few beers, so it became a lot longer and more self indulgent than intended!!! I could say that all the beer drinking was in celebration of Mr Double Down's anniversary but that would be a blatant lie!! Truth is I had the house to myself and the music blaring.
Hope you enjoy the tunes and keep up the good work Mr D.D.
