Greetings all.

Though the Funky16Corners Radio Podcast Archive has been up and running for some time, there has never been a repository for the numerous “guest” mixes that I put together for (or in collaboration with) other blogs/sites.

I’ve been doing this for some time, and some of these are among my favorites, that I go back to and listen to again and again. Hopefully you’ll pull down the ones and zeros and you’ll dig them too.

So, below, in no particular order are the various and sundry guest mixes. Keep in mind also that I don’t traditionally put together zip files of individual tracks to accompany these mixes.
That said, I hope you dig them.
