Welcome back, friends and loyal listeners. Apologies for the delay. Today we bring you a solid hour of hits by bitter, drunken slobs — which would’ve made sense had it come out when you were all hungover on New Year’s Day. Music provided to you by the talents of Kaiser Chiefs, The Smiths, New Order, Lou Reed, Kid Rock, Hank Williams Jr., Meat Loaf, The Pixies, The New Pornographers, Van Halen, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Motorhead and Eminem. You guys enjoy this bouncy mix about miserable souls.

By the way, if you notice the audio quality is better, please give me a shout out. I’ve spent some time over this break experimenting with Audacity and Audio Hijack Pro to improve the voiceover and the music mastering for the mix down.

  2. The Smiths – Bigmouth Strikes Again
  3. New Order – Love Vigilantes
  4. Lou Reed – Satellite of Love
  5. Kid Rock – Drunk in the Morning
  6. Hank Williams, Jr. – Whiskey Bent and Hell Bound

The last mix of 2007 goes out as this podcast began — no interruptions, no interludes and no explanations. You get a solid two-hour mix of the best music that came out this year.

And what made it the best? You told me it was the best. Your emails, IMs, replies on Pownce, phone calls and conversations in passing. There are a couple of additions based on personal picks. Overall though, this is a mix I hope you’ll enjoy into the next year.
