Let me introduce some of my dear friends from Twitter.
I apologise in advance for the severe lack of glitz, glam & glitter…
If your name is not mentioned, please don’t get offended.
The list is already long, but should probably still be extended.
I want to start off with Juslikemusic who I have known for a year,
This Saturday is his bday so please head over and give him a big cheer.
I am blessed to have the peeps that show me love and are there to support,
Friendly creatures like paulriley1982, futureancient, bmxkris, bkcl, EL3G, Dooks13, onthebuzz, thefunkhouse, and bluevibestudio
Before I round this up I’d like to send some extra love to LaidBackRadio
Not only for the musical inspiration, but for letting me do a show.
OH HOW I ADORE THIS MAN! Love the video & the song too.
Last weekend I had the absolute pleasure of finally meeting Colin, the mastermind behind the amazing website CubikMusik. We met through Twitter a couple of months ago and whilst talking about different things we realized that our birthdays were three days apart. Being two music lovers (and coincidentally loving the same types of music), we set up a “challenge” to make each other birthday mixes. He had to make a mix for me covering the years from 1974 to 2009 (the year he was born to his current birthday) and I had to create a mix for him with 35 songs (which is the age he turned). And below is the result… I don’t really have much else to say, apart from that I hope Colin (and you guys) enjoy this little treat. It was made with a lot of love, so if nothing else, I hope at least that shines through.
