All right good and gentle folk of of the Nation, it is once again time to toss in your nominations for this year's Summer Mix. The rules remains the same:
1. The theme is "Summer". You're free to interpret that as you'd like.
2. Put your nominations in a Spoiler box.
3. You may nominate up to 3 songs. Any further nominations will be ignored.
4. Unless we get an insane amount of nominations for some reason, everyone's first choice is automatically in. The rest of the mix will be filled out with the other nominations.
After that, we'll throw everything in a pot and let it simmer for a few weeks then release it upon an unsuspecting public.

Well, here we go folks. Was hoping to get this out by the 21st, but a busy schedule, houseguests, and travel put it on the back burner. That said, I've gone through this a number of times, and I think it's a pretty good mix, y'all. As with last time, "flow" was taken into account (with a tiny bit of theme thrown in), so management recommends you listen in order. Thanks to everyone for your input, and we'll see you back here next year.

Tracks #10 and #20 are a teensy bit NSFW, but it's more the blink and you miss it variety.

Hey guys, it's Mags again. I'm gonna spin a couple more SXSW artists. I'm not gonna go crazy with it, just on a Saturday here and there. Because believe me, I could fill at least 3 weeks, but that seems a bit excessive, so just a few highlights.
This one is Gossling. I saw them at the Aussie BBQ, which featured exclusively bands from Australia. I picked them over the other band I really liked (Miami Horror) because I immediately developed a huge crush on the singer. Shallow? Probably. Am I sorry? Not in the slightest.
The songs they did at the BBQ were a little more electronic(?) than this one, which I felt suited her voice better.
This originally was intended to be a BKaC entry, but DP and I recorded on a Saturday morning while watching soccer, so everytime we tried to get on topic, something happened to drag us back off. Never the less, I think it's an enjoyable podcast. We've always said this is our neighborhood bar, and all this episode is is a recording of two dudes on some virtual barstools.
Welcome back to WGOM Radio. Our next episode is a discussion between CarterHayes and me, MagUidhir. I've already apologized to CH directly about the audio quality. We had a great discussion, but I feel like I let him down by not capturing his input very well. I obviously didn't set up the settings correctly after reinstalling everything on my new hard drive And now I apologize you, the listener, for the jarring transitions between speakers. I promise future episodes will be better. Come for the comparison between Mike Trout and Jason Tyner, stay for the rundown of the 1998 Royals roster.
To join us, email me at acm006 [at] [g]mail and we'll set up a time.
That's Magoo interviewing me. Coincidentally, we talk a lot about things I talked about in the CoC today. Acting, writing, moving around.
That's me interviewing Magoo. A lot of you heard it already, but if you haven't, now you can. We definitively answer the question of what creates a roaming heart that must travel. Or maybe we just half-bakedly BS about it.
After a long time zone-induced absence, WGOM Radio is back. Mags and freealonzo preview the upcoming European Championships.
Here are some outtakes from Episode 2. The first section is what went on during the intermission during taping. The second part is a "What Are You Drinking?" that someone suggested we do during our "Goodbyes", but after SBG had already hung up. He had to go for another call, as I remember. Runtime: 9:00
Mags hosts SBG, Buffalo, DK, and cheaptoy as they talk Timberwolves and the NBA.
Run time: 1:05
