Music For All Seasons

Music For All Seasons

Part of my regular mix series for AudioStream magazine finds me compiling a mix for each season, and while I’ve always found the summer mixes to be a highlight, if only because I prefer making mixes while wearing a tank top instead of a sweater, autumn has a special place in my heart. It’s always disheartening when the summer fades to black, but all becomes well once you learn to embrace the fall.
