I cooked this mix up while preparing breakfast and after listening to it all the way through, making a few adjustments here and there, I thought I'd make this one available.

I finally set some time to get in on the action. THROWBACK THURSDAY.
It was fun going through the collection because it always turns into a walk down memory lane. The songs are the things that memories are made of, and fond ones at that. I found myself reminiscing about my adolescent years, the dance styles, the fashions and trends, my friends and of course the music. I couldn't help it. Those were some of the best times in life. Legendary DJ's Frankie Crocker and Vaughn Harper of WBLS 107.5fm in NYC, you'll never be forgotten! Pamela Bussey (WNYE 91.5fm, NYC) thanks for the extra attention and the airtime.
I'm blessed to have grown up in that time with that quality of music lyrics and music. It's no wonder that the music of the 70's is described as timeless and classic. The songs on this mix are some of my favs and woven in for flavor are a few updated versions of the classics. If you're GROWN AND SEXY, or if you love old school, this is right in the pocket. I think you'll feel me on this mix. OL SKOOL....the way it should be!!
ENJOY THE MIX!!Crazy Love (The Mashup)

Crazy Love" is a romantic ballad written by Northern Irish singer-songwriter Van Morrison. I combined the original vocals with a cover by smooth jazz guitarist extraordinaire Peter White.
This special mashup is also included in the Valentine's Day mix.

Morning commute? THIS ONE is for you! Jazzy tunes to help you get under way and endure the morning traffic if things get a little shall we say, jammed up.Fade To Black II

I believe in the power of music. When we take the time to listen, and I mean REALLY listen, notes transform themselves and our devoted attention taps into that power.
Now comes, Fade To Black II, a soothing, relaxing musical experience. I chose not to talk, other than the intro. For this mix, I'd rather let the music speak uninterrupted.

"I have decided to stick with love, hate is too great a burden to bear."
January 15th, a great man with a greater love was born. Focused, he lived with a determination and a purpose burning within him. He had a dream. Unselfish, the man gave his life knowing that it would propel and further that dream.
"Greater love has no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friends". What manner of man was this?
This mix recognizes the strength, courage, committment and the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr through spoken word, sound clips and song. When you listen, listen with an open mind and an open heart. During this mix, try to walk a few steps with Dr. King and recognize how he's touched your life. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr...thank you! The dream continues and the movement is alive!
A special shoutout and a hearty thank you goes out to my good friend, guitarist Rob Tardik who sent me his track "Contento Corazon (Happy Heart)" which is used as the opening and closing instrumental.Good Morning!!

I recently found this mix in my catalog. This is something I put together quite a few years ago for a show honoring the top 10 most influential African Americans of the 20th century. I didn't get to meet Maya Angelou at that event in NYC but I heard she liked the mix.
