RIBS – Valentine’s Day Mix 2007

February 12, 2020 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Rhythms In Black Satin, RIBS, TGrundy, vday2007 

I first had the idea to make a Valentine’s Day mix back in 2007. I was relatively new to podcasting (less than a year) having started back in the late summer of 2006 and was just bumbling along trying to get a feel for what worked and what didn’t. All I was doing (initially at least) was indulging in my passion for music and posting things online hoping someone might stumble across them and enjoy what they heard.

Little did I know (at the time) that over the course of the next year I would meet other like-minded music enthusiasts who were also posting mixes online and we would go on to create a number of music collaborations for all to enjoy. However, that’s a story for another section of the website {smile}. Right now, here is the very first Rhythms In Black Satin Valentine’s Day mix. It’s pre-Cupid’s Hunt (that wouldn’t be born until a year later) and pretty basic… no intro and no ID/promo drops. Just a nice selection of tunes to use as a relaxing backdrop for Valentine’s Day romancing.
