Music Monday: Summer BBQ


It’s Memorial Day. The unofficial start to summer. What is more summer than a BBQ? Unfortunately Mother Nature decided to pull one over on Arizona and it’s actually cloudy today. No summer BBQ for me today. Not because of clouds but because I lack a barbecue. I’m also not a big fan of indoor grilling pans. It takes the fun out of it. I’m getting off track. Who cares about my general dislike of grilling pans? No one.

I made this mix as a sequel to last years summer kickoff mix. It’s very eclectic, and features some music I’m loving right now. It can be used for pretty much any variety of summer activity. Including but not limited to barbecues, parties, or hanging out in general on an (overly) warm night.
