Lucky 13! This is the 13th podcast which means a full year, 12 months, 365 days of Soggy Disco Biscuit mixtape madness. It's been a lot of fun and a lot of disco. Some of these sets have been better than others. Some have made it onto blogs, onto people's Facebook pages, onto the airwaves.
Some highlights for me have been the amount of attention the mixtapes have received when posted on the AOR Disco website. Both Volume 5 and the BalAORic Mix received over 1500 plays from the traffic from this one site alone. Another highlight was having Volume 5 played on Lithuanian Radio on Sunday night last September. Check out that show here.
I think my favourite mixtape is Volume 7. It's just such a great collection of disco from a lot of eras. Volume 8 was a particular favourite, as well.
All up, the mixtape has been played 2077 times and downloaded 4453 times in twelve months. And that's just through the podomatic site. There's also plenty of hits on the Soundcloud -- 2545 in total.
So what have I got for you this month. Well, as promised, it's a bit of a 'best of' the last 12. I've started with a Radiohead song to try and get my mate Mick at least a little bit interested. I don't think it worked, though. His comment was the same as every month. Crap! Oh well, his loss!
