It’s almost Valentine’s Day and for the second year in a row, I am participating in the Cupid’s Hunt Podcast Collaboration. “Cupid’s Hunt is the premiere online collaboration event where DJ and podcasters from all over the Internet release loved-themed music mixes all on the same day: Valentine’s Day!” Check out our Facebook page HERE for details and links to my fellow podcasters’ Cupid’s Hunt selections.
This year, I decided to go with the theme Love Letters. As a lyrics-lover, I wanted to use selections that weren’t just average love songs, or typical slow jams, but tracks that had lyrics that, when separated from the music, actually read as a love letter. So sit back, and enjoy. Thanks to my friends and fellow podcasters Trel ‘Fave’ Robinson, Macedonia, and Doug ‘Fresh’ Ramsay for providing this episode’s station ID drops!
