Mix Tape 020

Autumn officially begins on September 22, 10:49 A.M. EDT. So sez God. Or Copernican theory or whatever.  But for some of us, it ended (this year) on September 3rd, Labor Day. Such indecision.  We can't even decide on its proper name. Here, we're sort of undecided as always so we'll end it today for selfish reasons… in order to squeeze in a few more great summer songs.  The weather man agrees as it's supposed to be frigid here tomorrow (the 50s!), but I digress.  A BIG BIG thanks to Mr. Summer, Big Bang Logan, who sen 4 more cd's worth of summer songs.  I'm tempted to declare an endless summer.

See below for scan credits.  Enjoy!
