i think my initial goal was to have this mix ready for the Ohio bicentennial. That was way back in the year two-thousand and three. I think I missed that deadline. But just by a wee bit. The procrastination turned out to be rather fortuitous as a number (as opposed to, say, a letter) of the songs on here were released after I initially started working on it.

My original plan was quite simple - to see if I could put together a mix of songs that referenced Ohio (or places therein) in the lyrics and also preferably in the title. But without using any of the following (obvious choices):

- The Theme To WKRP In Cincinnati
- 'Cleveland Rocks' (because it doesn't)
- CSN&Y 'Ohio'

And I'll be damned if it didn't turn out pretty well.

i listened to this mix mostly to make me laugh (i live in ohio) but i have to say, this is actually pretty decent :]
