Mix Tape Memories S1E4: "When Elephants Dream of Blue Music"

This is one of my favorite mix tapes. It was created by my friend, Paloma and sent to me from Spain in the early 90s. We had met while she was a foreign exchange student in high school and have kept in touch throughout the years. There was a time when we would send each other mix tapes with our letters.

The mix tapes that Paloma created put everyone else to shame.  She spent a great deal of time creating unique covers and decorating the tapes, too.

This tape has an eclectic mix of music--from Harry Connick, Jr. to John Denver, from Tom Waits to Prince, from Fairground Attraction to Billie Holiday.

She called this tape, "When Elephants Dream of Blue Music." You can listen to it TONIGHT at 8 pm (central).  The episode repeats on Wednesday 1am and  1pm (central).  Episodes will then be available on-demand via Mixcloud.
