The Mixtape with Pat Brickson 

Relive the excitement of the cassette era mix tape! Each week is a different theme and a set of songs to match that theme.

I call my show the Mixtape because I choose a theme for each show and play a bunch of songs to match that theme. A lot like the mix tapes I used to create back in the cassette era. My tastes are pretty broad so you'll get a chance to check out a variety of pop music styles. I may even have a guest co-host from time to time just to shake things up. If you want to hear something unique then this is the radio show for you. Just make sure to have your cassette cued up and ready to record!
