Always had a thing for surf guitar, and rock/pop instrumentals in general. From what I know here, this looks fantastic...would love to hear it.

Bless my heart, a Mixxer mix. All sorts of favorites, most of all the Chuck, of course.

This looks well planned and researched unlike most of my dndeavors in life and mixmaking. I know some of the psych, soul and surf stuff... I'll have to find out more about the others. Looks bloody brilliant though.
