Playlists from the past few weeks

So I've decided to begin posting here again after a long hiatus. In in the interim I seem to have lost the nice template I had set up. Oh well. Fresh beginnings. I've been incredibly busy but people seem to miss the posts so I've decided to give it another go. For starters, here are most of my radio sets from the past 6 weeks. If anything interests you, please let me know and we can try to arrange something. In the future I'll be posting mp3 recordings of the show. Also, if there is something you'd like from the archives that is no longer there, let me know here and I can re-upload it. I had significant problems with file hosting last year so I'm not too optimistic about what's left.
