'Let It Happen' and the #BestOf2015 ♬There must be something in the water” on Media Monarchy’s year-end mixtape: “Let It Happen” and the Best Of 2015 with my favorite music from over 60 bands for more than 4 hours! It’s got everything from Hot Chip to HoneyHoney, Slayer to San Fermin, Blur to Beach House and many, many more. I’ll take you all the way through it with talk breaks and personal notes on the music that made my year. Cheers!

♫Liner Notes♫: What an amazing whirlwind of a year! The first half was rocking at a commercial radio station with all the meet-and-greets, interviews, promo music and more. The second half was only slightly less rocking but with way more action at the Media Monarchy headquarters as we try and go full-time! Thanks for supporting us through more than ten years of independent, non-commercial alternative media… Now let’s blow out 2015 with a ton of great music, cheers!
