Comment:

When I was a teenager, back in the Stone Age, I thought T. Rex was IT!!! Lots of my peers said the band would not have any long-lasting impact, but here in the 21st century, much to my delight, T. Rex tunes are still playing and many artists cite the band and/or Marc Bolan as influences.
This mix was inspired by interaction with Pandora.com while it was still available to me overseas. No longer. Sigh.

Love T. Rex, love the wide selection of good songs here. It's wonderful to see "Lost In The Supermarket" on here!
I, too, am missing having access to Pandora here in Europe. Good thing there are other forms of sonic shamanism (like this site, for instance) around to help us through the grieving process.

Some definite favorites on here, like Lloyd Cole, The Proclaimers and Del Amitiri for starters. Looks intriguing.

A Man Needs To Be Told just how good this mix is. And it really is. The Ramones - S'Grass run on Side 2 being a favourite. O My Soul is a belter too..

I must say that I don't know absolutely everything here, but this is still my kind of mix! A really nice mix of all things punk, glam, new wave and classic rock. And very hip without being elitist. Mucho kudos! :-)

My favorites here include She Sells Sanctuary, Hush, Do Anything You Want To, You Shook Me All Night Long, Mama Kin, Lost In The Supermarket, In The City, Subway Train, Let's Go, One Way Or Another, and Do Ya!

Neat stuff, to be sure, I'd throw in some Smashing Pumpkins, Love & Rockets and Spacehog, my faves of the current glammers.

Awesome idea and tons of great picks. I would also agree that T. Rex is it.
