Hullo. So here we are, your final weekly playlist and blog. When I began compiling these things just over two years ago I never intended to run as long as I did, yet here we are at number 100.
Various commitments dictate that it’s becoming increasingly difficult to find the time to compile and compose the bloody thing so I’m putting it to bed for now.
It’s not necessarily the end. I may or may not return at some point in the new year with a less frequent format, but it’s definitely the final weekly portion of choice sounds.
For our last collection of choice cuts, I’ve decided to go with a ‘Greatest Hits’ package and while I hesitate to call it a ‘Best Of’, each selection is a stand-out from its respective issue.
Here you go then, almost eight hours of music comprising of 100 tracks, one from each of the previous 99 NL’s and a final soul slowie closer to round things up.
