The story about your friend and the mix tape made for you was very touching. I still make mix CDs however, I have to admit, Mark is right. How can you make mix mp3s? Can you even share an iTunes playlist?

I think this is my favourtie episode. Mix tapes and “High Fidelity”. To quote a wise man, “I have found my tribe!” 😉
