So happy to share a 3rd mix (1 more to go!) for McGill’s University’s radio station CKUT in Montreal for the “If you got ears” programme at the kind request of guest-host Jean Cousin who not only makes music as Joni Void but also runs his own excellent Everyday Ago label and like me is a passionate listener and mix-maker. Mixes are time-consuming and after 3 hours of selection already (you can still listen to the mixes I made for NTS, Dublab and Dublab.es – all links in the mix section), I really had to think hard about what this new one-hour mix could be.. and as I always, I ended up being pushed to revisit the music I love and have sometimes forgotten, and feeling grateful for the chance.

So this is a 60s special. You don’t need me to explain to you how important and utterly unique that decade was for music. I personally truly fell in love with music as an art form (as opposed to something I loved listening to on the radio, but had no clue about it being a composed, performed and recorded artifact) when I first heard The Beatles’ “A day in the life”. If I had to choose one song that changed my life this would be it – in a very literal way since I credit *that* song and no other for making me want to make music.

The mix will be archived on the programme’s page straight after broadcast and later on the Everyday ago mixcloud.
