Gigolo A Go Go - The First 10 Episodes

Time flies when your mixing tunes.

Just about a year ago, I began creating mixtapes - starting with my Gigolo A Go Go series.  My Mixcloud site now consists of roughly 30 hours of great mixes that have been enjoyed by over a thousand people.  Pretty cool.

The Gigolo A Go Go series represents my deepest hopes in blogging and mixing; to create a positive community of music-minded people who share experiences and socialize.  All of the mixes in this series are party mixes.  Many are played at small get-togethers of my funky friends; others are created for imaginary parties, attended by a hip assortments of rogues, rascals, and shady women.

In the end, my greatest dream is to host an endless party for all my absolutely favorite people.  Although that is not physically possible, virtually, we are doing it.

So, thanks for coming to the party.  I hope you stick around and have a good time.

If you are having your own party, I hope you play some of these mixes.  They are proven to provoke fun.
